The UK National Healthy Universities Network was established in 2006 and aims to offer a facilitative environment for the development of a whole university approach to health and wellbeing. In addition to virtual networking, Network meetings with themed workshops are held twice a year. The next one is scheduled for:
Wednesday 13 May 2015 at the University of Edinburgh
A report and presentations from the last meeting (incorporating themed session on Sustaining High-Level Engagement and Leadership) held on 27 November 2014 at Sheffield Hallam University are available.
If you have any comments about the site, or ideas about how it can be improved please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From 2009-2012, the University of Central Lancashire and Manchester Metropolitan University (working together with the Royal Society for Public Health and the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education and partnered by Leeds Trinity University, Nottingham Trent University, Teesside University and the University of the West of England) jointly led a HEFCE-funded project, Developing Leadership and Governance for Healthy Universities. This project enabled the Network to be strengthened and for this website and the Healthy Universities Toolkit to be developed. The Final Report and Executive Summary Report from the project are now available.
This section of the site contains resources for universities that are interested in taking the initial steps towards a whole university approach to health and wellbeing.
