Our work under this theme aims to create thriving communities by supporting medical research and patient care initiatives with selected organisations.
The Trust’s work around health has primarily focused on investigating disease areas of special interest to the Oglesby family. Our funding supports work to improve knowledge of the causes, potential treatments and care for people living with cancer. Any research we decide to support – medical, or elsewhere – is always focused on the delivery of ‘real-life’ practical results, leaving purely academic endeavours to others.
We also support work to increase access to sustainable, innovative health interventions, particularly community based solutions which address the health consequences of inequalities in low-income areas.
