Bradford District is a healthy place to live, learn and work
The communities we are born, live, work and socialise in have a significant influence on our health and wellbeing. The wider determinants of health determine the extent to which people have the physical, social, and personal resources to identify and achieve goals, meet their needs, and deal with changes in their circumstances.
By creating healthy places, fewer people will develop long term conditions and poor mental wellbeing. This chapter explores issues such as housing, employment, access to green space and poverty, which have a significant impact on health and wellbeing and health inequalities.
