Improving young people’s health and wellbeing: a framework for public health
Public Health England's report, Improving young people’s health and wellbeing: a framework for public health gives practical support to councillors, health and wellbeing boards, commissioners and service providers. It sets out a way of thinking about young people's health, focusing on wellbeing, resilience and reducing inequalities, describing six core principles which will promote a more effective, integrated response to needs and presenting features of a local health offer for young people. To help local areas, it poses some key questions for local leaders.
The framework sets out some of the key public health outcomes for young people. The Young People’s Profiles show at a glance how your local area is doing in relation to these key outcomes for young people, allowing you to compare the data with other local authorities and nationally. The information also shows local and national trends.
We provide links to other useful resources including key policy, guidance, reports and data which you will find helpful as you continue to improve your health offer to local young people.
