‘What’s good for all folk’ is a new poem developed with young people by West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership.
The poem highlights, through young people’s voices, that West Yorkshire and Harrogate’s cultural vibrancy is borne from cities, towns, villages with strong diverse communities and even stronger identities.
Working together with communities is what motivates West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership health and care leaders to work together, putting the needs of people first, whilst addressing the health inequalities that exist across the area for various reasons. The healthy life expectancy of people living in some areas across West Yorkshire and Harrogate is below the national average, and the inequalities between communities are significant. The poem reflects the importance of a fairer society and bright future for all – through the eyes of a child.
