A Message from our CEO

In light of the ongoing Covid-19 Virus Pandemic, the Burnham Health Promotion Trust has put a hold on all current Health Promotion initiatives and is working collaboratively with the Parish Council and other agencies to provide help and support to the community at this difficult time.

In line with Government guidelines, the BHPT staff are currently working remotely from home.  If you require assistance, especially with Foodbank or Foodshare vouchers, and you need to speak to us please ring our hotline number on 07483 326525 which will be manned during office hours or email us on gemma@bhpt.org.uk

We are continually working on our website to provide you with access to advice, assistance and support. If there is anything you feel ought to be included or you wish to tell us something, please email gemma@bhpt.org.uk or ring our hotline number above.

Stay safe and look after each other.
