In October 2018, the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health in accordance with Key Decision Report Ref: AH9 (18/19) agreed the endorsement of future arrangements for the West Sussex Wellbeing programme in order to establish the current agreement from 1st April 2019.
The West Sussex Wellbeing Programme is a partnership between West Sussex County Council and the seven district and borough councils to improve the health and wellbeing of the population and reduce health inequalities. The provision of a Wellbeing service delivers a prevention programme focusing on modifiable lifestyle risk factors and the wider role that District and Borough councils play in shaping the wider determinants of health, including housing, planning, leisure and green space, environmental health and economic development. The programme is in the final year of its current three year agreement.
The Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing is asked to endorse the new agreements for West Sussex Wellbeing, the adult health and prevention partnership programme between West Sussex County Council and the seven District and Borough Councils. The new agreements will be effective from 1st April 2022.
The Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing has approved;
1) the continuation of the West Sussex Wellbeing programme effective from 1st April 2022 for a five-year term, with appropriate break clauses in Agreements;
2) that WSCC fund the Wellbeing Services (via the Public Health Grant) with the D&B Councils contributing certain non-monetary resources through infrastructure and management (subject to the appropriate D&B councils sign off processes). Each D& B Council will act as the host of the pooled resources (including the Allocated Fund from the Public Health Grant); and
3) the continuation of the delegated commissioning responsibilities and functions relating to Public Health and Wellbeing Services to the West Sussex D&B Councils.
