Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.
Members received the Board’s update report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services, which included:
• Business Healthy Challenge 2019. Officers agreed to provide a link to the Business Healthy Newsletter and a link to the Business Healthy Website
• RSE Guidance for Councillors. Officers agreed to provide a short briefing for Members who are also school governors.
• Better Care Fund Performance
• Annual Director of Public Health Report. Members asked if this could be added to the City Corporation site, as well as Hackney’s and for a copy to be placed in the Members’ reading room in Guildhall.
In respect of the Business Healthy Challenge, whilst recognising that this had encouraged physical activity and team bonding, Members felt that the take-up of 650 was rather low, when compared to the City’s 513,000-strong workforce. Officers advised that they were planning interactive sessions for Aldermen and Common Councillors to help them boost engagement with businesses in their wards. The Interim Public Health Consultant; firstname.lastname@example.org welcomed Members’ suggestions to upscale Business Healthy and promote health and wellbeing among the City’s workforce.
RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
