The 50 Steps to a Healthier Newham strategy was developed in conjunction with a number of partners, and aims to tackle the health inequalities that exist within the borough.

The 50 Steps is a call to action to partners, the council and the wider community to work together to make Newham a healthier and happier place.

Find out more about the background to the 50 Steps.

The scope of the 50 Steps is very wide, in order to build the foundations so we can do even more in the future. It is designed so that whatever your role, whatever your organisation, there is a step you can take to help.

Now is the time to act and make a difference. So, what’s your step?

Newham Changemakers

We have chosen individuals and organisations who are going above and beyond to support the health and wellbeing of the community to represent one of our 50 steps. We call them Changemakers. Newham Changemakers sit at the heart of our campaign. They demonstrate how a change in mind set and a focus on health and wellbeing can be adopted by all.
