A word from the award’s sponsor
NICE is the independent organisation responsible for making evidence-based recommendations on activities, policies and strategies that can help prevent disease, reduce health inequalities and improve wellbeing.
We develop guidance on a wide range of health and social care topics relevant to local government, offering effective and cost effective advice. For public health, this includes topics like obesity, physical activity, behaviour change, sexual health, smoking and alcohol.
To improve the health and wellbeing of their communities local authorities can make use of NICE resources and be confident that the solutions they implement are rooted in the evidence of what works best and delivers good value for money.
