Information about HOSC Working Group - Whole System Obesity
The scope of the working group will be centred
on whole system actions to address high rates of overweight and
obesity in Thurrock and facilitating Elected Member leadership to
this agenda. Obesity being a complex issue with many drivers, the
focus will be on system-wide council-led actions, including on
wider determinants of health (for example promoting physical
activity and active transport through spatial planning policies,
promoting a healthy food environment etc), that impact on
population overweight and obesity.
This group will include representation from
the Health and Wellbeing Board (HWBB), since obesity reduction is a
key element of Goal 1A of the Health & Wellbeing Strategy
(HWBS): Work with communities to reduce smoking and obesity in
Thurrock. The group will also include Healthwatch to encompass
community views. The outcome of the working group would be to
recommend how the council changes and works through its policy and
strategy framework to support obesity reduction.
