INSPIRING PEOPLE TO ENGAGE WITH THEIR HEALTH TOGETHER
More than 90% of the world's population have a health problem and over 71% of all deaths globally are preventable from dietary and lifestyle choices.
Fixing Us is helping to create a world where we tap into the power of people to help inspire others to engage with their health and creating video and television content, patient journeys, events and virtual engagement forums to do this.
If you or someone you love are suffering from critical conditions including type-2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, mental illness, heart failure, respiratory illness and cancer, and if you need some help to engage with your health, Fixing Us might be able to help.
The story began in 2013 when brothers Anthony and Ian Whitington decided to make a project of 'Fixing' their dad's ill health. Being documentary filmmakers they wanted to film the whole journey and so launched a crowd funding campaign to make this happen. In 2014 they received support from the general public, including one vital and significant donation of £24,000 from the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust in Kent. Without the early kindness of these people who cared about Fixing Dad and its early potential to inspire others, Fixing Dad may never have got off the ground.
