From November 2020 to January 2021, the Health and Wellbeing Strategy was open to receive feedback from people who live and work in Warwickshire, to share their views on the county’s priorities to tackle health inequality and improve the overall health and wellbeing of residents.

Over 560 residents responded to share their views and ensure this strategy outlined the right priorities for Warwickshire.

Our Warwickshire Empowerment Service, funded by Warwickshire County Council, helped promote and involve as many disabled people as possible in the consultation. Now it’s ensuring everyone can read the five-year plan.

Following this consultation from the public, the Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2021-26 identified three priorities for the next two years:

  • Help our children and young people have the best start in life
  • Help people improve their mental health and wellbeing, particularly around prevention and early intervention in our communities
  • Reduce inequalities in health outcomes and the wider determinants of health.
