Supporting healthy communities



The places we live, work and play have a direct link to our health and wellbeing. Supporting safe, healthy and inclusive environments is vital to ensuring residents enjoy a good quality and long life.

Public health collaborates with a number of partners to influence the factors that have an impact on our daily life. We work with housing and others to ensure decent housing standards, housing that support needs across the lifespan, and to increase the availability of affordable homes.

Public health also works with community planners and environmental health to ensure that access to parks and green spaces, transport and safe active travel, and cleaner air are enjoyed by all.
