Healthy city community approaches to health and wellbeing

Enabling more people to eat well, move more and sustain a healthy lifestyle.

The group has a wide membership encompassing health, local authority and third sector staff.

The group aims to:

  • Increase awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and the range of opportunities available
  • Develop evidence based healthy lifestyle opportunities in communities to remove barriers and encourage behaviour change
  • Ensure opportunities are designed with participation and collaboration from partners and target groups
  • Actively promote, encourage and provide opportunities to learn about healthy eating and food production
  • Support and build capacity to enable businesses, groups, clubs and individuals to play a more active role in their community
  • Ensure the link between healthy eating and physical activity is embedded in all messages and opportunities
  • Create opportunities for families to undertake physical activity and eat healthily together, particularly low income families
  • To reduce inequalities by focussing resources and partnerships on target areas and groups
