Health and Wellbeing Strategy Consultation
Have your say and steer our health and wellbeing strategy.
What is the Epping Forest Health and Wellbeing Strategy?
Our aim is for all residents of the Epping Forest district to lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives and to reach their full potential. To be able to achieve this we need a plan that shows how all stakeholders will work together to tackle the things that may cause poor health.
Our existing plan launched in 2018 ran through to 2028.
However, following the pandemic there have been many social, economic and cultural changes to our communities influencing changes to residents health and wellbeing.
A persons physical and mental health are affected by things such as how active they are or the type of food they eat. It is also affected by wider factors such as the shape of our finances, how engaged with are with our community, access to a good education, work opportunities and much, much more. The new updated strategy is designed to reflect theses changes.
The Epping Forest Health and Wellbeing Strategy will identify the factors that have the biggest negative influence on our health and then find solutions to address them.
The strategy will be implemented to help improve our resident’s health and wellbeing. The plan will lead all local organisations, from small local charities all the way through to large statutory organisations such as the District Council.
Having a single plan with common objectives and priorities will improve partnership working meaning funding will be spent more effectively and efficiently.
Why your views matter
Your views matter because data and statistics do not tell us the full picture of what is affecting your lives or the lives of family and friends on a day-to-day basis.
In this consultation we will ask you for your views on certain issues, to tell us if the proposed ideas to tackle them are right and if there are any other actions we could take to address them.
There will be opportunities to add your comments and suggestions throughout and all the feedback received will be used to inform the final version of the Epping Forest Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
