This report highlights how together with our local partners, we have embedded a place-based approach in the work we do across the Council to reduce health inequalities and improve life outcomes for our residents.

Over the last year, it has been clear the power of collaboration with our system-wide partners and the impact we can make for the communities we serve when our aims and outcomes are properly aligned.

This year’s report is full of brilliant examples of how the Council has worked together with our partners, voluntary sector and communities to start to embed our place-based and ‘asset-based’ approach, which has helped our communities and individuals to have hands on involvement in shaping services that best meet their needs.

Exciting progress has been made within West Northamptonshire, particularly around a place-based plan to develop our Local Area Partnership approach. Great steps have been taken to work with our partners across each local area to help residents achieve our shared aim to ‘Live your best life’.

Whilst we have made great strides in beginning to address the poor health outcomes in West Northants, health inequalities very much remain a big concern and it is clear there is still more to do. In this report and its accompanying video, you will see how some of the work has started to address this issue and how the idea of taking a place-based approach embodies this way of thinking.

A big thank you to all our partners who continue to work with us on this important agenda and together, we can start to break down these health inequities so everyone in West Northamptonshire can live a long and healthy life.
