The ‘Looking Out for our Neighbours’ campaign, launched by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership, encourages local people to do simple things to look out for one another to help improve the wellbeing of other residents in the area. The campaign aims to get people looking out for one another – especially the most vulnerable so that we can help reduce demand on health and care services through early help and prevention.
