Third Sector Leeds – Health and Wellbeing Workshop
Tuesday 17 January, 2.30pm – 4.00pm at Stringer House.
Third Sector Leeds (TSL) will be hosting a workshop focusing on health and wellbeing on Tuesday 17 January from 2.30pm – 4.00pm at Stringer House.
The workshop, which will be presented by Forum Central* will explore how Leeds is addressing the challenges around health and wellbeing through the new Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and the opportunities this presents for ongoing third sector involvement.
Every health and care system in England is required to produce an STP, showing how local services will evolve and become sustainable over the next five years – with the aim of delivering better health, better patient care and improved NHS efficiency. But the plans aren’t just about health – they’re about wider view of wellbeing and the determinants of health – in which the third sector already plays a key role in communities.
This workshop is open to anyone who has an interest in finding out more about the STP, contributing to this agenda and discussing how we as the third sector can continue to play a key role in supporting communities and individuals to stay healthy and well.
Back in 2013 Leeds Older People’s Forum produced a publication called Generations Together in Leeds which highlighted some of the excellent inter-generational work in the city.
We are now planning on producing an updated (online only) version featuring different organisations and projects in order to highlight the continuing inter-generational work which goes on in Leeds and we are looking for organisations which would be interested in being involved.
