Liverpool Primary Care Trust has launched its Natural Choices for Health and Wellbeing programme, funding 38 community projects across the city that use the environment to boost people's health and wellbeing.
The projects range from food growing to initiatives to create new community gardens and orchards, to plans for new sports facilities and wildlife areas. The Mersey Forest was commissioned by the PCT to administrate the grants programme, which forms part of the city's Decade of Health and Wellbeing.

Rotunda will work in partnership with Merseyside Probation Trust and Merseyside Disability Foundation.
