The story of Zoe and Hasan aims to highlight the potential of Health and Wellbeing boards. Showing some of the many different factors which influence our health and wellbeing, it also talks of the different external interventions and personal resilience that can help to boost it. Their story is based on interviews with families across the country and Health and Wellbeing Board members. Zoe and Hasan’s story has been commissioned by the Local Government Association (LGA) to help explain the role and potential impact of the new Health and Wellbeing boards. Health and Wellbeing boards are being established across the country under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. They are a new type of forum, bringing together key leaders within local areas to focus on improving the health and wellbeing of their residents.
