The Plan provides a regional response to how we can encourage people to be more active and to have a healthier diet. Across the three partnerships, there are a number of priorities that the Plan will contribute to including, giving children a better start in life, recognising the contribution the environment makes to our physical and mental well-being and tackling inequalities.
In delivering the priorities in the Plan we will contribute to all of the national Well-being Goals as detailed in the Well-being of Future Generations Act.
Preventative action is a significant element of the work undertaken by the RPB and the two PSBs and the Plan will be a key element of that activity and provides a real opportunity for a more collaborative and integrated approach across the region.
The priorities detailed in the Plan are relevant to people of all ages. This Plan highlights the role that different partner organisations can play to make it easier for people to move more and eat well. By working in partnership we can encourage people to make healthy travel choices – to walk and cycle more, we can encourage people and organisations to buy food from local producers and we can support people to become a healthy weight.
Our local work is also aligning to the National Whole Systems Approach to Healthy Weight in Wales as part of Welsh Government’s Healthy Wales Healthy Weight Strategy.
