Healthy Neighbourhoods

This content relates to the following topics:

The 1998 public health Green Paper Our Healthier Nation proposed using the concept of healthy settings to provide a focus for improving health and reducing health inequalities.

Healthy Neighbourhoods looks at the potential of the neighbourhood setting in improving people's health and wellbeing, using examples of neighbourhood-based health initiatives in the United Kingdom.

Drawing on a public health seminar at The King's Fund, Healthy Neighbourhoods makes recommendations about what the UK government, national organisations, neighbourhoods and local people could do to work together to develop healthier neighbourhoods.
