Launched just over a year ago, CHL UK’s ambition is to help customers and employees understand, access and afford healthier options, while also ensuring shared value for business and communities. Leveraging Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity’s local insights and close relationships within the community, CHL UK focuses on supporting behavioural change and positively impacting consumer health in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, two areas with significant inequalities between low-income and more affluent neighbourhoods and home to over 600,000 consumers.
