The 2018-19 Public Health annual report looks at the importance of spending time with others as a way to improve our health. Whether you live in West Bromwich, Wednesbury, Smethwick, Oldbury, Rowley Regis or Tipton, there are lots of ways to get active and meet new people in your local area.
Annual Report 2018- 19
We hope you enjoy looking through our report. Throughout, you will hear from the groups who work so hard to get the community active. You will also hear from those who have had the benefit of using these groups.
This report isn’t just about fitness groups. Although joining a walking group can be good for your fitness, joining a choir or knitting group can be good for your stress levels. Put together, these create a Healthy Sandwell.
Thank you to everyone who helped put the report together. In addition, special thanks to colleagues from Sandwell Public Health and organisations who provided such great case studies that could be in our report.
