What’s happened so far?

We are inviting members of the public and our stakeholders to have their say on Shropshire’s Draft Healthier Weight strategy.

The draft strategy describes how we and our partners will work together to help tackle the issue of unhealthy weight through a whole system approach. This approach focuses on promoting healthier weight for people of all ages, tackling the broader factors that impact people’s health and wellbeing through working in partnership.

The draft strategy reflects valuable feedback previously provided by members of the public and stakeholders, alongside current evidence, national guidance and local data on the scale and impact of unhealthy weight. It identifies key priorities and underpinning principles which will direct, inform and frame actions to deliver the strategy in a way that aligns with experiences and views on healthy weight in Shropshire.

The purpose of this public consultation is to gather the views of as many people in Shropshire as possible therefore we’re inviting members of the public and stakeholders to have their say on Shropshire’s draft Healthier Weight Strategy. The formal draft consultation will run for 10 weeks, opening on 30 June and closing on 7 September 2023.

Your feedback will be used to inform the final Healthier Weight Strategy. Any amendments from the consultation feedback we receive will be made to the Strategy prior to final agreement and sign-off at Shropshire’s Health & Wellbeing Board (HWBB) later this year.

Please take time to look at the Draft Healthier Weight Strategy document and complete the consultation survey, which you can access by clicking on the ‘How to get involved’ tab at the top of this page.
