Haverhill LifeLink is an exciting new health project exclusive to people who live and work in Haverhill. The project, run by ONE Haverhill Partnership, will see two new LifeLink Coordinators employed to signpost between GPs and identified patients and the wonderful amount of vibrant community groups and activities in Haverhill.

The LifeLink Logo

Haverhill LifeLink teamed up with Year 10 design students at Samuel Ward Academy in the town to come up with a suitable logo.

The LifeLink team were hugely impressed with the range of creative designs and eventually chose the work of 15-year-old Zach Baldwin to front the project.

Zach’s work will now be used to front all marketing materials for the innovative LifeLink project.

The two-year pilot project was made possible after a £69,000 grant from Suffolk County Council and £63,768 from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The project is being shaped by more than 40 partners working alongside the Borough Council and ONE Haverhill Partnership - including West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group (WSCCG) , GPs in the town, Suffolk County Council, West Suffolk Hospital, voluntary and community services, Haverhill Town Council, Abbeycroft Leisure, St Nicholas Hospice Care and other agencies.
