Health and Wellbeing Board Neighbourhood Assembly

In 2019 Camden’s Health and Wellbeing Board set out to develop a citizen-led neighbourhood approach to health and wellbeing.

A Neighbourhood Assembly of local residents was established in the west of the borough to examine the key issues around health and wellbeing then co-design and develop placed-based solutions with the Council and local partners.

This work is rooted in the context of both Camden 2025 and the NHS Long Term Plan, providing insights on how the Council and health partners can work in closer partnership with communities as we move towards a more integrated system of health and care.

The neighbourhood-based pilot was delivered by residents with support from Camden Council and FutureGov. A range of other local and community-based
organisations contributed to the process.
