How can we use people, and local assets to make Wolverhampton a better place?

Health deprivation in Wolverhampton is high and it has poor life expectancy rates. If the city was to open a Well being centre, it may help to identify specific issues and improve the health and well being of its community. The well being centre could offer services such as; health check ups, health information and sign posting, musical and creative activities, complimentary therapies and support groups. It could also provide opportunities for personal and professional development, like short courses and workshops, employment advice and volunteering. The centre could request support from health services, career and guidance services, training providers, volunteers and entertainment facilities based in Wolverhampton. The opportunities and ideals that such a place in Wolverhampton could bring, would be invaluable and provide not just short term but long term benefits to the whole of Wolverhampton.
