The Community Plan sets out how partners in Argyll and Bute can come together to improve our local communities. There is a health and wellbeing outcome in this plan which states:
Outcome 5 – enable people to lead active, healthier and more independent lives
More information on Argyll and Bute’s Community Plan can be found here – https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/council-and-government/community-planning-partnership
During 2019 a comprehensive review took place into the existing approaches used and how these could be improved. This review included:
- Review of the Health and Wellbeing Partnership which can be found here – HWN Partnership evaluation January 2019
- Review of health and wellbeing within the Area Community Planning Groups which can be found here – Health and Wellbeing Survey for Area Community Planning Groups Report
- A scoping event with partners in May 2019
- Joint working with the other outcomes in the Community Plan, specifically Outcome 6 – Safer Stronger Communities
This activity has culminated in the following new plan for Outcome 5:
|Branding and promotion of Argyll and Bute’s natural assets (in order to increase physical activity levels).
|Valuing the environment and the benefits of the environment to people living in Argyll and Bute (in order to link to the CPP agenda to address climate change).
|Promote the self-management of long term health conditions
