Wellbeing starts with people; our connections with family, friends and colleagues; the behaviour, care and compassion we show one another; the environment we create to live together.
We all have a part to play in Leeds being a healthy city with high quality services.
The Health and Wellbeing Board helps to achieve our ambition of Leeds being a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest, improve their health the fastest.
What is the Health and Wellbeing Board?
We are a group of senior representatives from organisations across Leeds, including Leeds City Council, the NHS, the community sector and Healthwatch, which represents views of the public.
Why does the Health and Wellbeing Board exist?
We exist to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Leeds and to join up health and care services.
How does the Health and Wellbeing Board do its work?
We meet about 8 times every year, with a mixture of public meetings and private workshops.
We get an understanding of the health and wellbeing needs and assets in Leeds by working on a
Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA), which gathers lots of information together about people and communities in our City.
Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy
Health and Wellbeing Strategy (PDF 712KB) is about how we put in place the best conditions in Leeds for people to live fulfilling lives – a healthy city with high quality services. Everyone in Leeds has a stake in creating a city which does the very best for its people. This strategy is our blueprint for how we will achieve that. It is led by the partners on the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Board and it belongs to everyone in the city.
summary plan of the strategy (PDF 405KB) is also available.
Reviewing our progress
annual review (PDF 2.6MB) serves as a roundup of activity commissioned or directed by the Health and Wellbeing Board and guided by the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy. It covers the time period of January 2017 to January 2018 and is constructed from perspectives of the organisations represented on the Board, actions and updates from those who have brought items to the Board during this time, and self-assessments of the Board’s function and purpose from Board members.
The Health and Wellbeing Board often meets in public and everyone is welcome to attend. You may want to ask us a question at the start of the meeting or just listen to partners across the city having great conversations about improving health and wellbeing in Leeds.
