Tower Hamlets healthy borough programme
The Tower Hamlets healthy borough programme is
about making it easier for children and families to be more
physically active and eat more healthily wherever they live, work,
travel, play or learn, while improving the local environment.
The programme aims to help everyone to
maintain a healthy weight throughout their lives, which will reduce
the risk of diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and
The healthy borough programme brings together
NHS Tower Hamlets, the council, voluntary and community
organisations, the private sector and local people.
Tower Hamlets is the only London borough to be
awarded ‘healthy town’ status and there are eight other ‘healthy
towns’ nationally. It is part of the Government’s
national Change4Life initiative.
