Declaration Support Pack and Evaluation Report

Declaration Support Pack and Evaluation Report

With the Local Authority Declaration on Healthy Weight being adopted across the North West and beyond, we have commissioned a first evaluation of Blackpool Council’s declaration – one year on. This report gives some insight into the process the declaration took and the impact it has had in Blackpool.

To accompany the evaluation report, we have spoken to colleagues who have worked on passing the declaration through their councils and have developed a ‘support pack’ for other Local Authorities considering a similar approach. The aim of Support Pack is to help Local Authorities navigate some of the likely hurdles of the implementing their own Declaration on Healthy Weight, and the benefits, in terms of public health, for your communities.
