Sandwell is a place where we live healthy lives and live them for longer, and where those of us who are vulnerable feel respected and cared for.

Sandwell people have less healthy lifestyles than the national average. People are living longer but are often in poor health as they get older – we want people to live well for longer.

Everyone can help make this happen. By 2030, we will:

  • all be taking more responsibility for improving our own health and the health of our families;
  • have excellent co-ordination between social care and the NHS;
  • have a strong approach – with all partner organisations – to prevent ill health and improve long-term health and wellbeing; and
  • be doing well in protecting our most vulnerable adults and children.
