About the consultation
Public Health is inviting Islanders to take part in a research project that will explore their health and wellbeing priorities.
The project will involve focus groups based on themes mentioned during Jersey’s Big Health and Wellbeing Conversation in October 2022. It will look at what the Government can do more of to help you improve your health and wellbeing.
The focus groups will take place between April and October 2023.
To take part, Islanders will need to complete the recruitment questionnaire which will gather some background information to help those with shared priorities to come together.
Factors the project will be discussing include:
- cost of living
- family and community
- climate change and pollution
- alcohol and drug use
- tobacco and vaping
- food and nutrition
- physical activity
- leisure time, including work life balance and socialising
- media, including social media
- physical and mental health

Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Karen Wilson, said: “Engaging our community and hearing about their health and wellbeing is hugely important and I really hope Islanders take up this opportunity to take part as everyone has valuable insights about how we can live healthier lives.”
Director of Public Health, Professor Peter Bradley, said: “This is an important project that we are working on. We want you to bring along your best ideas on how things can be made better for you. Using your feedback, we will have a deeper understanding of how we can build on what works well and what improvements can be made. We’ll be using this information to develop better policies and better ways to support all Islanders in the future”.
