50 Steps to a Healthier Newham: Newham Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2024-2027

Everyone in Newham should have the opportunity to thrive, and to have healthy, happy, and fulfilled lives. Good health not only gives everyone a chance to achieve their potential and lead a meaningful, enjoyable life; health is also a vital asset, which will help Newham’s growing and ageing population be ready for the future.

The aim of 50 Steps to a Healthier Newham 2024-2027 is to improve health for all Newham residents, and reduce health inequalities.

Since the launch of the first 50 Steps to a Healthier Newham in 2020, we have seen substantial progress. People have come together, working in inspiring and new ways with the council and other organisations to improve residents’ health and wellbeing. However, the last three years have brought huge and unprecedented challenges, which have had a disproportionate impact on Newham residents. The refreshed strategy aims to harness the shared commitment and ambition for a healthier borough, and respond to the challenges of the last three years.
