Happier, healthier lives (2016 – 2020)

This strategy is the Nottingham City Joint Health and Wellbeing strategy setting out the vision and ambitions for making Nottingham City a happier and healthier place to live. The strategy focuses on four main outcomes healthy lifestyles, healthy culture, mental well-being and healthy environment

Mental health and wellbeing strategy (2019 – 2023)

This strategy outlines the overarching approach to improving the mental health and wellbeing of the citizens of Nottingham City. Its purpose is to provide a shared direction of travel that consolidates existing local plans and aligns to wider partnership strategies whilst identifying nuances specific to Nottingham City.

Better lives better outcomes - Adult social care strategy

Nottingham needs a sustainable social care system to help people live better lives. We have called our strategy Better Lives Better Outcomes. We have consulted with partners and stakeholders and this reflects our shared ambition for Nottingham to be one of the best cities for adults in need of support to live well. A summary version of the strategy is available here.

Integrated Care System - Everyone's different, everyone's equal (2019-2024)

This document considers mental health across the whole age range but excludes dementia which will be the subject of a separate strategy. This strategy builds on the many positive aspects of services provided by NHS and local authority partners in Nottinghamshire, and the improvements already being made in support of NHS England’s Five Year Forward View for Mental Health and latterly the NHS Long Term Plan.

The Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group strategy

Our ambition is to increase the number of years that people in Nottingham live in good health, reduce the health inequalities experienced between different areas in the city and empower people in Nottingham to improve their own health.

Children and young people's plan (2016-2020)

The Children and Young People's Plan 2016-2020 is based on evidence about past performance, needs assessments, consultation with local families and agreed priorities between partners. It sets a clear direction for the Nottingham Children's Partnership and also for the rest of One Nottingham's partners; the welfare of children, young people and families is a collective responsibility for all of us.

Nottingham's autism strategy (2018-22)

The autism strategy has been developed within the social model of disability. It recognises that disability is caused by the way society is organised, rather than by autism itself and considers ways of removing barriers that restrict life choices for autistic people. The strategic framework identifies opportunities to remove barriers, so autistic people living in Nottingham can be independent and equal, with greater choice and control over their own lives.
