Temple Well-Being works in partnership with families and other key people in the young person’s life, as well as with professionals from other organisations involved with young people such as health care, social care, police, education, youth justice and youth offending teams and local authorities, in order to build a strong support network.
We have been attending and contributing to the Kirklees Children & Young People’s Emotional Health & Well-Being Partnership Strategy meetings and are forming partnerships with schools and community organisations.
This contributes to the goals of the Kirklees Health and Wellbeing Strategy which are improving health and reducing inequality.
The important factors of the strategy include:
- the Covid pandemic
- the ‘cost of living crisis’
- recognition of the climate emergency
- changes to the partnership landscape, particularly the creation of the West Yorkshire, Kirklees and locality health and care partnership arrangements.
In addition, there is now much wider recognition of the importance of
- the impact of poverty and housing on health and wellbeing
- tackling inequalities and promoting inclusion
- recognising, understanding and working with the distinct communities that make up Kirklees
- working with communities and individuals and enabling more people to directly shape their local place, rather than just doing things to or for them
- the potential of digital technology for improving health and wellbeing
Temple Well-Being is committed to playing a crucial role in achieving better outcomes for participants of their projects, particularly around developing their resilience, emotional intelligence and mental health & wellbeing.
