The Health Agency seeks to enable local people to take action that makes a positive impact on their own and their community.
In the pursuit of this purpose, the Agency will be guided by three operating principles.
An Holistic Approach -The Agency recognises that real health improvement can best be achieved through a holistic approach. This acknowledges that individual well-being depends on physical, emotional, social and environmental factors.
Community Development – The Agency will adopt an approach that is consistent with the principles of community development in terms of empowering people, both individually and collectively, to identify and address the issues that confront their lives.
Working in Partnership – The Agency acknowledges the importance of working collaboratively with voluntary and statutory services to ensure that awareness of health issues is integral to their activities.
