Health, Work and Well-being - Caring for our Future is an ambitious strategy put together by two government departments, the Department of Health and Department for Work and Pensions, and the Health and Safety Executive to improve the health and well-being of working age people. It places real responsibility not just in the hands of Government, but also with employers, individuals, the healthcare profession and stakeholders.

The strategy pulls together all the different strands of work going on in this area within government and is a high-level document, which clearly sets out what action the government is taking to deliver real change for the health and well-being of working age people. This strategy is a crucial part of delivering on the Government's commitment to improving the health and well-being of the working age population; and will play a significant role in ensuring delivery of the workplace health commitments outlined in the White Paper Choosing Health.
