Health & Social Care, Housing and Place Engagement 2022

Closed 6 Jun 2022

Opened 14 Apr 2022


This engagement exercise looks at three topics that impact on us all - Health and Social Care, Housing, and Place (the area / neighbourhood we live in).  

The feedback we gather through this engagement will help to shape three new local strategies: 

  • The East Lothian Integration Joint Board Strategic Plan 2022-2025 (Health and Social Care) 
  • The East Lothian Local Housing Strategy 2023-2028
  • The East Lothian Local Development Plan 2025 

You can view the current versions of these Strategies / Plans by following the links below. 

We have designed as a joint engagement exercise as there are significant overlaps and links between these topics - for example, health and social care services may be required to meet someone's needs, but the house they stay and the area they live in are also important in terms of their overall wellbeing and quality of life. 

We also wanted to avoid running three separate engagement exercises within a short period of time that would ask people about similar issues - what's important to them and their families; what their priorities are; and how their wellbeing and quality of life could be improved.
