“A future for Liverpool, in which economic prosperity, social justice and protection of the natural and built environment are pursued simultaneously to secure good health and enhance well-being for all people, now and for generations to come.”
City Health Plan - 1996
This vision still holds true today - Governments, organisations, leaders and managers change however where we live, our working lives and how we pay the bills, how we keep healthy and stay well, even for many how to meet basic needs remains a challenge.
Liverpool recognises that a long-term approach is needed, to look systematically across the life course from the ‘womb to the end of life’ and to go beyond current planning cycles.
‘Information is power’ and there is now more access to information, resources and help than ever before. A few years ago searching for information was straightforward but also very limited. This website helps you to access the help and support you need to make informed choices for everyday living and aims to bring together in one place what you can do and where to find help.
