We have large network of boards and groups, both formal and informal that we work in and alongside.
Working in partnership
The Warrington Health and Wellbeing Board drives the work which is needed to meet the aims in the Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which includes helping you to:
- influence decisions and make healthy choices
- feel safe from crime
- have your physical and mental health valued
- look after yourself and manage your own care
- get the best care in the right place at the right time
- make sure your children get the best start in life
- live in a strong economy with local jobs
- live a healthy, fulfilling life into old age
It also must make sure that we protect the most vulnerable, and we stay focused on preventing ill-health and reducing inequalities.
We choose these priorities by looking at the data in the Warrington Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). The JSNA pulls together lots of anonymous statistics about the health and lifestyle of local people, which means we can see where extra support or services are needed.
The board meets 5-6 times per year. Find out more about the Health and Wellbeing Board, what it does and who is a member, and you can read its meeting papers and annual reports.
The Warrington Community Safety Partnership is the statutory crime and disorder reduction partnership for the borough and fulfils both statutory and non-statutory functions. This group brings together key senior representatives from partner organisations working on the crime and safety agenda in the borough.
The Homelessness Priority Action Group was set up in 2014 in order to drive forward implementation of the recommendations of the Homelessness Commission. For more information please contact Dave Cowley: email@example.com
The Drug and Alcohol Team Strategic Board was re-launched in June 2015 to champion and drive forward joint commissioning and delivery activity aimed at reducing substance related harm in the borough and to minimise the health harm, violence and anti-social behaviour associated with alcohol and drugs in the Borough. For more information please contact Cathy FitzGerald: firstname.lastname@example.org
Delivering wellbeing in Bewsey and Dallam was a project set up by the Warrington Partnership focused on working within two of our most excluded community areas, and aims to deliver the conditions in which local residents can enjoy a better quality of life both now and for years to come. This project ran from 2013-2016 but has left a great legacy of improvement and ongoing work and plans for the future.
