Health and Wellbeing
By 2050 everyone in Bristol will have the opportunity to live a life in which they are mentally and physically healthy.
Our vision. By 2050:
- Our citizens will thrive in a city that supports their physical health and mental health equally, with children growing up free of adverse childhood experiences having had the best start in life and support through their life.
- Our strong communities will be formed of resilient and independent people. Our people will live healthier for longer and live happier lives in Bristol.
- Integrated health and social care will seamlessly meet the ever-changing needs of our communities. We will focus on early help and prevention; our interventions will be tailored and person-centred.
- As a result, the gap of life expectancy levels between the most deprived areas and the most affluent areas of Bristol will be reduced significantly.
In 2020, the three key priorities for Health and Wellbeing are:
- An updated community and cross-sector approach to tackle hate crime has been adopted across the city to help agencies coordinate prevention activities and reduce hate crime.
- Bristol is on the way to becoming an Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Aware city with 20% of the public sector workforce trained in trauma informed practice.
- 50 organisations will have committed to adopting and implementing the Mental Health at Work core standards.
