Uttlesford Health & Wellbeing Strategy 2019-2022

We have refreshed our strategy aimed at helping local people to stay healthy.

This new  Uttlesford Health & Wellbeing Strategy (PDF) [3MB]  is a refreshed version of the original Uttlesford Health & Wellbeing Strategy, which we published in 2017, and has been developed to take into account our evolving communities. Proposed new developments across the district will bring a larger and more diverse population and we must ensure that we consider everyone's health and wellbeing in this process.

This document has been developed by and for Uttlesford Health & Wellbeing Board to address an agreed set of key priorities and principles with a focus on preventative healthcare. All priorities and principles are connected and we must ensure that the actions that are taken to improve the wellbeing of residents reflect this.

Five key health and wellbeing priorities identified for Uttlesford District are:

  • Combatting loneliness and social isolation
  • Supporting people to age well in Uttlesford
  • Enabling people to eat well and be active
  • Alleviating winter pressures and fuel poverty
  • Planning for healthy communities
