Murray Hall Community Trusts’ approach flows from a social model of health that recognises the contributing factors that affect health and wellbeing. A social model of health emerged as a reaction to the traditional health model of managing illnesses and disease. The World Health Organisation (WHO) state:
“Health is a state of complete physical, social and mental well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental right of every human being, without distinction of race, religion, political beliefs or economic and social conditions” (1948)
We have the unique position of being based in a community and understanding the issues that affect people’s lives, our approach in our work is underpinned with our values. The social model of health is even more important in the current challenges as we all face making the most of the resources around us. Murray Hall values underpins all that we do and our core aim is to enable people in need to improve their health and wellbeing as they live with the many challenges of inequality that affect their lives.
Our Core Values Include:
- Community Development
