Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy

South Gloucestershire Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2017 – 21

South Gloucestershire’s Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWBS) 2017-21 sets out key areas of focus and actions, which members of the Health and Wellbeing Board will work together on to reduce health inequalities and improve the health and wellbeing of people living and working in the area.

The strategy has been produced by the Health and Wellbeing Board in collaboration with the voluntary sector and local community groups. Our approach acknowledges that health and inequalities are largely determined by where we live, our lifestyle choices, and wider social, economic and environmental factors. We understand that action across organisations and policy areas on these wider determinants of health is necessary to improve population health.

Vision

Our vision is that: “All people in South Gloucestershire have the best start in life, live healthy and happy lives and age well in health-promoting communities. They feel encouraged and enabled to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing and to care for themselves, and have access to health and care services that reflect their needs when required.
