We want Birmingham to be a great city to lead a healthy and active life.

What this means for Birmingham

The council will help people become healthier by:

  • encouraging people to get more exercise and to eat more healthily
  • reducing health inequalities between different groups of people in the city
  • leading initiatives to improve the mental wellbeing of people in Birmingham
  • helping health and social care professionals work more closely together to better support Birmingham's people
  • making sure there's a greater choice of healthy places to eat in Birmingham, and increasing food hygiene standards across the city
  • helping Birmingham's people, particularly our most vulnerable, to become more independent. We want people to be able to stay in their own homes for longer, with extra help available if they need it
