Public Health briefing for LEPs

Year of Publication: 

Public Health England has published a briefing for local enterprise partnerships on health and work, worklessness and economic growth.

The briefing is for decision-makers in local enterprise partnerships (LEP) who are developing local economic strategies. It summarises the potential contribution of health with employment and economic growth, and proposes effective ways to tackle these issues. It focuses on people: in employment with health conditions; at risk of falling out of work and onto welfare benefits; or with health conditions not in employment who are receiving benefits.
