About Hartcliffe Health and Environment Action Group

Hartcliffe Health and Environment Action Group (HHEAG) was established in 1990, by residents of Hartcliffe and Withywood with the aim of supporting local people to improve their health, well being and the quality of life in the area.

Our services offer support to develop healthy and sustainable lifestyles by increasing skills and understanding, fulfilling these core aims:

  • A comprehensive programme of food-based activities from “Plot to Plate”
  • Structured support for adults to reduce mental and emotional stress in their lives
  • Providing access and support for local residents to engage in health promoting physical activities.
  • A “Stop Smoking” service

All of our work is rooted in Community Development and we try to link our areas of work to offer a holistic programme of support and activities for the community.

Hartcliffe Health & Environment Action Group

HARTCLIFFE HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT ACTION GROUP (HHEAG) is based in an outer city housing estate in South Bristol, which is recognised as an area of multiple deprivation.We have been active since 1990, following an Avon Health Authority initiated survey, asking residents about their views on living in the area and how it affected their health and well being. The subsequent report was presented to local people at a community meeting and from this was formed a steering group. HHEAG is now a registered charity and company limited by guarantee with a board of trustees drawn from local residents.HHEAG has, over the years, developed a number of projects, some of which we have supported until they were ready to become independent, for example The Dundry Hill Group and Hartcliffe & Withywood Mental Health Forum. Other projects such as the Community Market Garden and Nutrition and Cooking projects continue to be a core part of our work.We also give direct support to the Hive (including shop, outreach stalls and resource centre) and the Hartcliffe and Withywood Amblers, who are part of the national “Walking 4 Health” movement.Our mental health support work has, to some extent, now come full circle with Positive Minds (providing “support and advice to help adults reduce mental and emotional stress and the impact of the recession in your life”) recently merging with HHEAG.Since the start of HHEAG we have worked in partnership with Bristol PCT (Public Health) and Bristol City Council (Community Investments, Allotments and Environment & Leisure Services). Through these partnerships we help these statutory bodies deliver community based services, which improve and enrich the lives of local people.

We have also always worked closely with other community based voluntary sector organisations including Hartcliffe & Withywood Ventures, Hartcliffe and Withywood Community Partnership, Pipa, HAWKS and WiSH.We believe that HHEAG offers a holistic and sustainable approach to making positive life changes through diet, exercise, guidance and support.

In this way we have enabled many local people over the past 20 years to contribute to both a healthier personal life and stronger community.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
