We are working to ensure that children on the Isle of Wight are supported to get the best start in life that will lead to good health and wellbeing. This will provide the foundation to ensure they are able to achieve the best opportunities and keep as healthy and well as possible throughout their lives.
We want to ensure that families, individuals and communities are thriving and resilient with access to good jobs, affordable housing, leisure activities, lifelong training, education and learning, health and care services are are able to enjoy the place in which they live.
We want to ensure that people on the Isle of Wight are able to live independently in their own homes with appropriate care support. We want to make sure older residents are supported to play an active role in their communities and supported to maintain and develop their social and community networks.
We have started transforming the way mental health services are provided on the Island.
Support will be tailored to the needs of the individual, the new model will be more effective and more efficient.
The NHS, the council, voluntary sector and other organisations involved in the delivery of mental health services have agreed a way forward.
The Blueprint for Mental Health sets out our vision for change. We’ve already started making improvements, but we’re committed to doing more.
