The Health Improvement Commission LBG is a charity with a mission to empower, enable and encourage healthy living in Guernsey and Alderney, through a vision for our Islands to be places that support us all to lead a healthy life. 

Delivering a range of actions from the States’ Healthy Weight and Substance Use Strategies as well as the Bailiwick Social Prescribing scheme, the Commission’s operational team has grown from five in 2018, to 15 at the end of 2021. 

The report shares highlights from the Commission’s Eat Well, Be Active, Healthier Weight and Substance Use workstreams, as well as Bailiwick Social Prescribing after the scheme’s launch in July 2021. The report also reflects on the impact of the Commission’s work, its communications and messaging and future activities.

‘The Health Improvement Commission has strengthened its role within the community and as a result is busier and becoming more impactful. Our team are very innovative, have many different skills, and are passionate about improving health. It has been wonderful to see the broad range of activities undertaken in 2021, and the Board are looking forward to a productive and successful 2022.’

Stuart Falla CBE, The Commission’s Chairman

’It is very rewarding that we are able to build on the strong foundations that we have put in place and deliver positive impacts on people’s health. Our 2021 Annual Report is credit to the hard work of the Commission’s team and the collaboration of many organisations and partners who all play their part in creating the conditions in which our health can improve locally.’
