Healthy Influences: CHEX Conference 2015
CHEX warmly invites your community-led health organisation and public sector partners to attend our free annual conference.
‘Healthy Influences - Community-led health’s contribution to Scottish policy’
- 10:30 – 3:30pm, Thurs 4th June 2015
- Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue St Mary’s Road, EH1 1SU
This year’s conference is about learning from each other and growing our influence - come for the buzz and share how you and others are making a difference.
Through facilitated discussions with community-led health and Scottish Government representatives, the morning will focus on our contribution to four key government policies:
• Health Inequalities • Food & Health
• Health and Social Care • Curriculum for Excellence
In the afternoon we will plan on how to grow our influence so that community-led health organisations can better help policy makers to develop well informed policy leading to improved outcomes for all.

Community Health Exchange
CHEX is short for Community Health Exchange. We promote and support community-led health -where local communities identify the issues that are important to them and organise to take collective action to address these issues and improve their health.
Paul Gray, Director General Health and Social Care and Chief Executive of NHS Scotland:
If you are a local group or organisation in Scotland working to improve the health of your community, or if you are in the statutory sector supporting this type of work, you can register with us for information, advice, networking and training opportunities.
