Healthy Mansfield - Committing to Change report

Posted 04.04.2019

For a number of years now, Mansfield has experienced high levels of poverty. A 2017 report conducted by Public Health England concluded that the district of Mansfield is among the 20% most deprived areas in the Country. The area performed particularly badly in a number of health indices including life expectancy, obesity, child health and alcohol related conditions among others. With funding becoming ever more scarce, there is a risk that if a clear strategy is not developed to tackle these issues now then the health of the people of Mansfield may continue to fall short of national standards.

The Healthy Mansfield Commission has been appointed by the Executive Mayor of Mansfield, Kate Allsop. The purpose of the Commission was to investigate the causes behind the poor health outcomes experienced by many in Mansfield and to determine how best to support and improve the health and well-being of the residents within the district.
