Health Development

North Belfast Health and Social Wellbeing Forum

North Belfast Health & Social Well-being Forum has been in existence from 1999 when North Belfast Partnership set it up to facilitate the bringing together of interested individuals & groups to develop a cross-community, partnership approach to addressing issues of health and social well-being throughout north Belfast.

The Forum provides a platform to discuss health issues across North Belfast and prioritise areas of work which need to be addressed; members include representatives from across the community, voluntary & statutory sectors working in the field of health & well-being with the overarching aim of reducing life inequalities throughout the locality.  The Forum has been pivotal in taking the lead in setting up a number of health related projects in North Belfast, including Community Action on Mental Health, RADICAL and PIPS.
