The Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy

The Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) agreed and launched its Strategy in 2018.

Partner organisations have formally signed up to the Strategy through their governing bodies/boards. 

This means the Strategy stands as our shared commitment to taking collective responsibility for health and wellbeing.

Our key priorities are:

  • A single sustainable system – working together, leading the change and using our resources in the most effective way. 
  • Prioritising prevention – supporting people to be healthy, independent and resilient throughout life. We’ll offer help early to prevent and reduce demand for specialist services.
  • Tackling inequalities in communities – providing support for those who are most in need and address wider factors that impact on wellbeing, such as housing and crime.
  • Integrating ways of working – collaborating in the delivery of people-centred care to make sure services are joined-up, consistent and make sense to those who use them.

Implementing our Strategy

One of the workstreams implementing our strategy is a Homes and Health project, being led by our District Councils Sub-Committee.
