To consider the report of the Leeds Trauma Awareness, Prevention and Response Steering Group that sets out the Leeds ambition, approach, progress to date and next steps in developing our Compassionate Leeds: Trauma Informed City. This is a long-term ambition and will need a strategy and plan to reflect that need to keep our focus on this area for the next decade.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Leeds Trauma Awareness, Prevention and Response Steering Group submitted a report that set out the Leeds ambition, approach, progress to date and next steps in developing our Compassionate Leeds: Trauma Informed City.

 

The following were in attendance:

 

-  Jane Mischenko, Children's Partnership Development Lead, NHS Leeds CCG

-  Emmerline Irving, Programme Manager for Improving Population Health and Maternity (Public Health), West Yorkshire & Harrogate Health and Care Partnership

 

Representatives introduced the report and provided a presentation to Members, providing an overview of plans to create the children and families’ trauma service to prevent, raise awareness of and respond to Adverse Childhood Experience’s (ACEs) in Leeds, led in partnership by the NHS Leeds CCG and Leeds City Council. It was explained that community adversities such as poverty, community violence and discrimination are now recognised as ACEs, and all forms of traumatic experience require a holistic response from all agencies who have key relationships with vulnerable children and young people. Members were advised that colleagues are also working to develop a local place-based strategy alongside the WY&H Integrated Care System programme strategy, to align and ensure synergy, whilst also reflecting the distinct needs of the city. It was also acknowledged that Leeds is the first city nationally to create a dedicated trauma service and strategic plan.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  Members recognised the challenge associated with developing clear indicators that evidence the impact of the programme on key mental health indicators, but sought more information on the actions for agencies and organisations and how they will be measured. Members were advised that the strategy and action plan is currently being co-produced, and will include clear actions for specific agencies involved that will be measured and evaluated, but that the initial focus will be to generate a cultural shift and gain commitment from agencies to key ambitions.

·  Members welcomed the broader definition of ACEs to include non-relational adversities, along with the ambitions for cultural change and focus on overcoming trauma and as opposed to unhelpful diagnosis based on self-soothing behaviours, such as drug or alcohol abuse.

·  Members noted the importance of involving third sector organisations and smaller grass roots projects in shaping the strategy and ambitions, as well as providing the resources and funding to help groups deliver trauma awareness and support projects locally.

 

RESOLVED – That the Health and Wellbeing Board:

 

a)  Note the ambitious vision and scope of the Leeds work

b)  Recognise progress to date in Leeds

c)  Note proposed next steps in Leeds

d)  Recognise the synergy of the WYICS programme and benefit of working together

An Update on the Physical Activity Ambition pdf icon PDF 369 KB

To consider the joint report of the Director of Public Health and the Director of City Development that provides an update on the development of the Physical Activity (PA) Ambition for Leeds which is being led by Active Leeds and Public Health together with partners across the city. The report builds upon previous items covering the Physical Activity Ambition presented at the Health and Wellbeing Board in December 2018 and October 2020.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Director of Public Health and the Director of City Development submitted a joint report that provided an update on the development of the Physical Activity (PA) Ambition for Leeds which is being led by Active Leeds and Public Health together with partners across the city.

 

The following were in attendance:

 

-  Anna Frearson, Chief Officer, Public Health

-  Steven Baker, Head of Active Leeds, City Development

 

The Executive Member for Public Health and Active Lifestyles introduced the report, advising Members that activity levels have significantly reduced due to the impact of Covid-19 and there has been evidence of increasing inequalities for people from different socio-economic backgrounds and age groups. Therefore, two priorities around ‘Active Environments’ and ‘Active People – Reconditioning’ are proposed as a next stage focus, along with work progressing to develop a new Physical Activity Governance structure, which involves the establishment of a Physical Activity Partnership Board.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  In response to a request for more detail in relation to the governance structure, it was confirmed that a structure chart would be circulated to Members once finalised. Members were advised that it had been agreed that the Physical Activity Partnership Board (to be set up early 2022) will have a relationship with climate change and inclusive growth as well as health, and that the governance structure chart will reflect those relationships.

·  Members suggested that Local Care Partnerships, Community Committees and Parish/Town Councils all be engaged with, along with local third sector organisations, who will be able to provide knowledge and understanding of the needs and geography of the local area for new facilities and programmes.

 

RESOLVED – That the Health and Welling Board:

 

a)  Note the progress presented and support the proposed next stage priorities of Active Environments and Active People - Reconditioning.

b)  Support the establishment of the Physical Activity Partnership Board as part of governance arrangements.

c)  Note their role in realising a number of system leadership outcomes to support the achievement of the Physical Activity Ambition.

The Head of Housing and Homelessness submitted a report that informs the Board of the review underway to produce a new 5-year Leeds Housing Strategy. The strategy review will be underpinned by the Council’s 3 strategic pillars including the Health and Wellbeing Strategy. Consultation and engagement on the housing strategy priorities will take place during November and December, with a view to finalising the updated strategy by April 2022.

 

Mandy Sawyer, Head of Housing and Homelessness, introduced the report and provided an overview of the review of the Leeds Housing Strategy currently underway and will be considered by Executive Board in April 2022. Members were advised that the review will focus on establishing the cities housing need and how the Council works with other housing providers and key agencies to improve housing conditions across the city with three main priorities - housing quality and affordability, age friendly housing, and supporting healthy and active communities.

 

Members discussed a number of matters, including:

 

·  Members welcomed the report and the priorities aligning to health inequalities, however suggested that narrative around links between good housing and good health, and poor housing and poor health, could be strengthened. Particular reference was made to deaths and serious health conditions linked to poorly heated and/or damp homes.

·  It was suggested that the recently published housing chapter of the health and social care White Paper be used to inform the development of the strategy.

·  Members also queried how the strategy will seek to address standards in new build homes moving forward. Members were advised that the Government are currently reviewing the Decent Homes Standard, which unfortunately will not be published in advance of the publication of the strategy, however, the strategy will reinforce the Council’s commitment to housing standards.

·  Affordable warmth and hoarding were also raised as key issues to focus on and were assured that both will feature as critical elements of the strategy.

 

RESOLVED –

 

a)  Note and comment on the proposed approach to reviewing the Housing Strategy.

b)  Note the comments made on how the Housing Strategy, including the health and housing theme can support the delivery of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

c)  Note the health and housing agenda item planned for the Health and Wellbeing Board meeting in February 2022.
