wmca health and wellbeing

Helping everyone to live longer and healthier lives is a top priority for Sandwell. Good health is vital to economic growth, increasing productivity and reducing demands on public services. 

Through the Combined Authority, we can:

  • Improve mental wellbeing particularly among our workforce
  • Cut pollution and improve air quality
  • Prevent illness and keep people well for longer
  • Transform contaminated and non-useful land into new green spaces
  • Improve public transport links to cut car use and get more people walking
