Hackney Health and Wellbeing Strategy: what do you think?

We’re consulting on Hackney’s new Health and Wellbeing Strategy for 2022-26, a plan showing our approach to reduce health inequalities and improve the health of people who live and work in Hackney. This will set out the health and wellbeing priorities over the next four years.

Health inequalities are avoidable and unjust differences in health outcomes between groups of people and communities.

This Strategy does not reflect all the work we will do to improve health and reduce health inequalities in Hackney: many other actions and activities will continue or start.

We are proposing that our Strategy should focus on three priorities: mental health, social connection and financial security. Read the draft Health and Wellbeing Strategy in full here or contact Sara Bainbridge on 020 8356 7147 or to receive a paper copy.

These priorities have been developed through a three month engagement phase, with residents and wider stakeholders, where we asked what we should focus on in our new Health and Wellbeing Strategy. 

We spoke to over 650 residents and organisations during this period in a range of different ways -through interviews, workshops, completion of paper surveys, meetings with organisations, visiting community groups and focus groups. You can find more information in the engagement report online.

We would value your views on these three suggested priorities to ensure they make a real and sustainable difference to the health and wellbeing of Hackney’s residents. 

Feedback from this consultation will be used to help develop an action plan.
You may have given your views in 2021 about health and wellbeing, to help shape this Strategy.
