Welcome to the Your Health section

We need to raise aspirations, giving children and young people the best possible start to life, improving our housing, reducing worklessness and increasing physical activity, underpinned by a renewed focus on reducing inequalities.

There are significant challenges, in addition to existing levels of deprivation and child poverty it will always be more difficult to sustain lasting health gain in increasingly mobile and diverse communities especially at a time of global recession. The inevitable impact on levels of employment, one of the strongest determinants of physical and emotional health.

Enfield has a strong history of successful partnership delivery, in recent years we have tackled the biggest killers and reduced the numbers dying from cancer and heart disease and developed one of the most far reaching healthy schools programmes in the country.

We are pleased to commend this document to you and will ensure that progress is closely monitored throughout our partnership.
