The Public Health Responsibility Deal
The Public Health Responsibility Deal aims to tap into the potential for businesses and other influential organisations to make a significant contribution to improving public health.
Organisations signing up to the Responsibility Deal commit to taking action voluntarily to improve public health through their responsibilities as employers, as well as through their commercial actions and their community activities.
There are collective pledges on alcohol, food, physical activity and health at work.
The Health at Work network is chaired by Dame Carol Black, Chair of the Nuffield Trust and former National Director for Health and Work, and supported by Earl Howe, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Quality at the Department of Health.
The network comprises of representatives from the private sector, central and local government and the third sector. It aims to reinforce understanding of the positive link between health and work among employers, employees and the general public.
