About Stoke-on-Trent Healthy City

The overarching aim for Stoke Healthy City is for all people to have the equal opportunity to live healthy, happy lives. Although much healthier than it was 50 years ago, the City of Stoke-on-Trent could be healthier. Health is about feeling good in mind and body. It is also about the quality of our lives.

Many things affect our health such as:

  • the area we live in
  • the type of housing we occupy
  • whether we have a job, and if so the kind of work we do
  • the sort of education we have and..
  • the quality of health services available to us

Other things also affect our health such as:

  • what we eat and drink
  • how much physical activity we take
  • how much sleep we get
  • whether we smoke or use drugs

There are considerable variations in health within in the City with some communities enjoying better health than others. Stoke-on-Trent Healthy City recognises that no single agency can tackle all the issues which affect our health.

Therefore it hopes to achieve its aims by...

  • Contributing to healthy public policy
  • Working with a range of partners to develop tools, strategies and ways of working that will facilitate change in the end which organisations can integrate into their own practice to improve the population's health.
