Podcast series: ‘Changing it up’ – Ep 2 with Sarah Bedford
We’re following on our podcast series ‘Changing it up’ where hosts Nick Sinclair and Clenton Farquharson chat with people from across the country who have dedicated their lives to changing things for the better in their communities.
In our second episode, Sarah Bedford, Head of Social Policy at the New Economics Foundation (NEF), talks about community wealth building and inclusive economies which distribute control and wealth and offer good jobs with fair pay. Sarah also explores how community enterprises support inclusive economies and in turn how these economies can have a positive impact on health.
“It’s really important to think about community wealth building and inclusive economies in the context of how we can improve health and reduce health inequalities”
