The Slough Wellbeing Board, which formally came into being from 1st April 2013, carries out statutory functions set out in the Health and Social Care Act 2012, including the preparation and publication of a joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS).
In addition, the Board has a number of locally-agreed objectives and is the umbrella high level strategic partnership for the Borough, working to agree on the priorities that will improve health and wellbeing and reduce the inequalities of the residents of Slough.
The full terms of reference of the Board, which fully sets out its functions and ways of working, are available here.
The Board refreshed the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy in 2016, focusing on four key priorities of:
1 - Protecting vulnerable children
2 - Increasing life expectancy by focussing on inequalities
3 - Improving mental health and wellbeing
4 - Housing
