Public health literacy

Public health literacy

Public health literacy is a measure of how well can use information about health to improve lives in their community.

Health Literacy

We are improving our health literacy by working to better understand:

  • our neighbourhoods and the people that live there
  • the issues and inequalities that they face

Community champions

Our community champions scheme helps us to improve health literacy by:

  • speaking to residents about the health challenges they face
  • finding out more information about people's key priorities for improving their health
  • sharing information with people where they live

For more information about the scheme see our page about:


We also want to improve the public health literacy of people who:

  • live
  • work
  • study in the city

To do this we offer training for:

  • individuals
  • community organisations
  • businesses
  • care providers
