The Coventry and Warwickshire Place Forum, made up of the two Health and Wellbeing Boards, has designated 2019 as the Year of Wellbeing to significantly raise the profile of health and wellbeing opportunities for everyone.
Partners across Coventry and Warwickshire have renewed their strong commitment to working together by signing an updated health and wellbeing concordat. The concordat is a partnership agreement which underpins commitment to a programme of work around wellbeing, including the Year itself. Read the concordat.
A new model of health and care services for Coventry and Warwickshire is also being developed to transform the way that services for our local communities are designed, delivered and used. View the System Design.
We are aiming for most of our work to be devoted to helping people stay well – providing guidance and support, encouraging the use of leisure opportunities, parks and other community assets and tailoring our efforts to take account of local needs and health inequalities. We recognise the importance of education, good work and affordable, decent housing in underpinning our quality of life. We want to make self- help the first and natural choice for everyone who is capable of it, rather than waiting for intervention when things go wrong. To promote this vision we are preparing to make 2019 a Year of Wellbeing in Coventry and Warwickshire, a year to inspire people to improve their health.
