Supporting resilient communities: helping people to feel good and function well

Victoria Park Plaza, London, SW1V 1EQ
Thursday 21st March 2019

Our annual flagship conference on public health explores and builds on the challenging, innovative work being undertaken by councils and public health teams with their partners and local communities. This year’s conference will focus on helping to develop and support resilient, healthy communities.

Local authorities and their partners continue to make progress on improving health and wellbeing and tackling health inequalities. They work together in new, diverse and innovative ways to protect and improve the nation’s health, despite stark financial challenges.

This keynote annual event features a wealth of expert speakers, participatory workshop sessions and opportunities to network with speakers, delegates and exhibitors from across the public health spectrum.

Join us at our most popular health conference of the year. This is your opportunity to hear the very latest thinking on key policy and improvement agendas, put your questions and comments to those involved in shaping them at the highest level, and network with your peers on the issues that matter to you locally.

To register and for more details visit the LGA page.

The conference planning committee is seeking bids to run policy sessions. Deadline for submission Friday 2 November 2018. Click here for more details.
