New Partnership poem to help tackle health inequalities
We also wanted to share with you an animated poem ‘What’s good for all folk’, developed with young people by WY&H HCP.
The poem highlights through young people’s voices that West Yorkshire and Harrogate’s cultural vibrancy is borne from cities, towns, villages with strong diverse communities and even stronger identities.
