Steering group

London’s making every contact count steering group was initiated in January 2017 by Healthy London Partnership, the Association of Directors of Public Health (ADHP) London, Public Health England London, Health Education England, London Councils and the Academy of Public Health.

The steering group aims to build on early enthusiasm for the concept to build momentum and create a strong support for making every contact count in London. Members of the group want health, wellbeing and prevention to be an important part of every Londoners’ life.

We jointly chair and coordinate the group with the Association of Directors of Public Health London. This group aims to be a forum where key stakeholders and experts across London can collaborate to enable specific prevention interventions and activities that address health inequalities and improve health and wellbeing.

Our strategic aims
