Public Health Literacy

Health Literacy


Public Health Literacy is a measure of how well can use information about health to improve lives in their community.

We are improving our health literacy by working to better understand:

  • our neighbourhoods and the people that live there
  • the issues and inequalities that they face

Our Community Champions scheme helps us to do this by:

  • speaking to residents about the health challenges they face
  • finding out more information about people's key priorities for improving their health
  • sharing information with people where they live

We also want to improve the public health literacy of people who:

  • live,
  • work
  • study in the city.
  • To do this we offer training for:
  • individuals
  • community organisations
  • businesses
  • care providers
