Warrington has a population of 209,397 people. One of the biggest challenges facing Warrington is the inequalities caused by socio-economic deprivation and the impact this has on the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. These inequalities are starkly demonstrated by the gap in life expectancy between the most and least deprived areas of the borough.

If Warrington were a village of 100 people:

  • 14 adults live with depression
  • 32 children are overweight or obese by year 6
  • 64 adults are overweight or obese
  • 11 people die from heart disease
  • 25 adults are physically inactive
  • 7 adults have diabetes
  • 29 people die from cancer
  • 8 adults are smokers
  • 14 people live with at least two long-term conditions
  • 79 is the average male life expectancy
  • 82 is the average female life expectancy
  • 9 people are aged 75+

The Warrington Together partnership aims to deliver an integrated health and social care system through effective stakeholder collaboration and deliver improved health and social care services and outcomes for people in Warrington.

  • Improving and maintaining quality services and managing more complex needs locally
