Economies for Healthier Lives

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, together with the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, the City Region’s 6 local authorities, the city region’s 6 Public Health Departments and Jobcentre Plus worked collaboratively on the development of the programme and will continue to work collaboratively on its delivery. This collaboration will help ensure that work to tackle health inequalities across the city region, both that which is already happening and that which is being planned, is even better co-ordinated and that residents with a health condition who are seeking employment are better able to not only find it, but also sustain it.

The programme works closely with residents, employers and other key stakeholders to identify the challenges often faced by unemployed residents with a health condition who are seeking employment and the challenges faced by employed residents with a health condition who want to remain in employment. This approach will provide the opportunity for residents, employers and other key stakeholders to directly contribute to and influence the work undertaken by the programme, as it seeks to better understand the impact particular health conditions can have on the employment prospects of the individual. It will also help to identify simple, inexpensive and practical steps that can be taken by the resident and the employer to overcome these challenges.

We want to hear from you

Economies for Healthier Lives wants to hear from residents in the City Region who have a health condition, which they believe has unfairly hindered them when seeking employment or when trying to remain in work. If you or someone you know has had such an experience, please tell us about it by completing this short survey. It should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and the information you provide might help improve this situation. So whether you or someone you know has a physical or mental health condition(s) or an illness that affects employment opportunities, we want to hear from you.

The survey closes on 31 March 2023.

Please be assured that any information you provide as part of this survey will be confidential and used for research purposes only. We’ll process your data in line with our Fair Processing Notice with any personal data, such as, age, disability, and employment status used for analysis and assessing whether we are receiving feedback from a representative cross-section of society. Please read the ‘Fair Processing Notice'(opens in new window) for more detailed information on how we will process your data.
