Have your say on improving health and wellbeing in the city

Complete the Active, Safe and Independent Lives Survey

Southampton City Council would like to hear your thoughts about how we can help improve health and wellbeing in our city.

We want people in Southampton to live active, safe and independent lives and manage their own health and wellbeing. This can be achieved by encouraging and promoting healthier lifestyle choices and behaviour through campaigns, working with the NHS, providing services to people and enforcing regulations around what can be sold and to whom.

Currently there is a focus on ensuring more adults in Southampton:

  • Are active 
  • Are a healthy weight 
  • Do not drink so much alcohol that it is bad for their health (This is 14 units or more a week)
  • Are free from an addiction to smoking 

Councillor David Shields, Cabinet Member for Healthier and Safer Communities, said:
"We would really appreciate hearing your views on what the council should be doing to make Southampton a healthier place. Last year, we launched a wonderful health and wellbeing scheme in primary and secondary schools, Healthy High 5 Award as well as one for early years settings, Healthy Early Years Award, that are already encouraging the next generation to make healthy lifestyle choices, and I feel that we can do even more with your help. Please complete the survey to tell us what you think should be done."
