The Health Agency seeks to enable local people to take action that makes a positive impact on their own and their community’s physical, mental and emotional well-being.
The Agency recognises that real health improvement can best be achieved through a holistic approach. This acknowledges that individual well-being depends on physical, emotional, social and environmental factors.
Working in Partnership
The Agency acknowledges the importance of working collaboratively with voluntary and statutory services to ensure the awareness of health issues is integral to their activities.
The Agency adopts an approach that is consistent with the principles of community development in terms of empowering people, both - individually and collectively, to identify and address the issues that confront their lives.
