Working with Business to Improve the Health of our Communities: Case Studies

Abstract

This resource describes how public health in a number of councils has started to use the opportunities of a local government setting to improve health and wellbeing.

The case studies were chosen because they show a range of ways in which public health in councils is approaching working with local business. They include councils spread across England, covering both rural and urban environments and with varying levels of deprivation and affluence. The LGA looks forward to seeing many more such examples of local energy and innovation in the months and years to come, and seeing the measurable impact it will have. The challenge for us all is not just to identify good practice, but to champion and share it.

Case studies include:

  • Creating a healthier workplace
  • Creating a less obeseogenic enviornment
  • Improving child vaccination rates
  • Working with early year providers
