Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2023-2028

Our 2023 – 2028 Health and Wellbeing Strategy builds on the work and relationships which have been built over the last ten years. 

In the wake of Covid-19 and the impact that has had on our Borough, this new strategy redoubles our focus on tackling health inequalities which have continued to increase.

It recognises the value of community in supporting better health, the importance of both mental and physical good health and the need to work together to support children and families to give children and young people the best start in life. It draws on our intelligence about the borough and starts to build our understanding of what really works to tackle health inequalities. This includes addressing the wider determinants of health – such as housing, the economy, employment and the environment – and remaining focused on prevention.

This strategy sets the direction for all our activities but particularly acknowledges that we cannot achieve what we want without collaborating and that communities should be at the heart of that collaboration. It is deliberately ambitious and sets out a challenging agenda for us over the next five years, which will be difficult given the current context of a cost-of-living crisis and ongoing, systemic inequity.

But this is an ambition we have to meet to deliver for the people of Lambeth, in order to see all of our health and wellbeing improve.
