Your Health Needs You


Hackney Council is carrying out a survey this summer with residents aged 16 and over to get an updated picture of how the Council, and local partners including NHS, can support people’s health and wellbeing.

The previous Health and Wellbeing Strategy helped the borough focus on four big issues that residents felt were the most important to address. These included tackling obesity in young people, helping people quit smoking, promoting good mental health and supporting those with dementia.

This new strategy will take a fresh look at these big issues, and see what residents think are the most important things to focus health and wellbeing work and funding on over the next four years.

Cllr Chris Kennedy, Cabinet Member for Health, Adult Social Care and Leisure
Our borough has undergone significant development and growth in recent years, and it is time for us to refresh our aims on health and wellbeing for Hackney. We want to hear from local people on what they think are the big issues we need to be tackling, to ensure all residents can benefit from full, happy and healthy lives. It only takes around 20 minutes to complete this survey so please take part and help shape a healthier future for Hackney.

Those who live, work or study in Hackney can take part and share their views by completing an online questionnaire. Those who complete the survey will be in with a chance to win a £150 Love 2 Shop voucher. It takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and all feedback will be anonymous. 

If someone would like a paper version of this survey please email: donna.doherty-kelly@hackney.gov.uk or call 020 8356 3000. 

Inputs from the survey will be used by the Health and Wellbeing Board to shape the draft version of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy that will go out for consultation in the Autumn.
