At Fulcrum, we understand working collaboratively with local communities and charities has a powerful, positive impact. The LIFT initiative brings public and private sectors together in partnership to improve and regenerate health services.
As part of a local community project, Renova contributed funds to the Halton Community Radio (HCR) in completing a studio redevelopment. The HCR provides local people of all ages with the opportunity to broadcast their talents and interests live on air. The redevelopment gave local volunteers new opportunities and allowed presenters and listeners to connect as a community.
Renova has also completed a makeover of the interior of Newton Community Hospital to make it dementia-friendly. Provision of dementia-friendly clocks has helped to reduce confusion for patients, as has the matching of the colour scheme to the hospital’s way-finding signs and clear contrast between the colours of walls and toilet doors. These simple changes have made a big difference at Newton, in consultation with numerous stakeholder groups and within the building’s existing lifecycle maintenance plan.
