Health and wellbeing is a top concern
for residents and is important for a good quality of life.
The disparities between different groups in Redbridge need to be
tackled: health inequalities will cost at least £4.4m every year in
lost productivity from health related problems. This will
have an impact on service areas such as Housing, Children's
Services, Leisure, and Adult Social Services. In the next
year the Council will be responsible for improving the health of
the community when Public Health functions transfer from the NHS.
To prepare for this we have established a Shadow Health and
Wellbeing Board which is currently identifying priorities based on
the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment. We will also focus on
sports, leisure and cultural services, and housing, which are
essential to good health and wellbeing.
We aim to use our resources in a fair and equitable way to meet
the needs of the most vulnerable people, including those in housing
need and improve the health and wellbeing of residents in
Redbridge. We will do this through the provision of good
leisure facilities for all, and having a choice of information,
advice and support services that promote and sustain independent
and healthy living.
