The Blackpool Central East Health and Well-Being Inquiry brought together a group of local residents to discuss the main things that affect people’s health and wellbeing and what can be done to address them. A Citizens Inquiry is an example of a mini public, in which a diverse group of local people are given the opportunity to share opinions and experiences with each other and to hear from others before producing a set of recommendations. This Inquiry was the fourth Inquiry to explore Health and Wellbeing in different neighbourhoods in Blackpool.
