A Digital Health Hub on the High Street in Nailsea
Can a physical space on the high street help support people to improve their digital health literacy?
Nailsea Town Council purchased the old butchers shop on the High Street – 65 High Street. Their vision was to turn it into a community space that can help Nailsea residents improve their lives through engaging with digital technology and their heath.
We worked with the town council to design the physical space and the activities available at 65 High Street. It has quickly established itself as a key part of the community providing a free, comfortable space, where people can find the support they need.
As a wave 2 NHS WDP Pathfinder, Good Things Foundation worked with Nailsea Town Council Clerk Ian Morrell to consult with residents to understand how to design the space to be most effective.
