THE HEALTH PARKS
"PARKS FOR HEALTH ASSESSMENT"

wE HELP YOU DELIVER 

The Parks for Health Initiative places Parks and Open Spaces within the context of Public Health, and the Prevention of avoidable ill-health. Based upon a review of the scientific evidence-base, the Parks for Health Assessment identifies some 75 elements and characteristics, demonstrated by research, to contribute to health and wellbeing, within the context of Parks, Open Spaces and the Natural Environment. By identifying these elements within 5 Primary Criteria, 15 Secondary Criteria the analysis of the Online Survey provides three report formats.

 

OUR REPORTS

  • The Audit: This identifies, through a series of charts of Primary Criteria, the Current Health Status of the Park and areas for ‘Improvement’.
  • The Evaluation : This identifies, through a series of charts of Primary and Secondary Criteria, the Current Health Status of the Park and areas for ‘Improvement’ and tables of elements ‘In Need of Improvement’ and their link to medical conditions.
  • The Strategy: This identifies, through a series of charts of Primary and Secondary Criteria, the Current Health Status of the Park and areas for ‘Improvement’ and ‘New Interventions’ and tables of elements ‘In Need of Improvement’ and ‘New Interventions’ and their links to medical conditions.
  • In the Evaluation and Strategy reports, ’Improvements’ and ‘New Interventions’, are linked to the prevention and treatment of Obesity, Physical and Mental health Conditions, and Environmental Risk Factors. 
  • From the site survey it is also possible to create Health and Activity Maps. These can form the basis for health promotion initiatives to encourage healthy lifestyle choices.
  • The Parks for Health Interventions Framework allows Parks to be valued and supported for their contribution to the prevention and treatment of avoidable ill-health, not simply for their contribution to amenity and leisure.
