Communities at the Centre Community Led Health Approaches to Tackling Health Inequalities

With an emphasis on discussion and information exchange, we would very much like you to attend to share ideas, inspirations and shape our future.
We are delighted that members of our CHEX network, Health All Round, North Coast Connection Stepping Stones and Parents Advisory Group for Education and Socialisation, have agreed to lead workshops to help achieve this.
Paul Gray, Chief Executive of NHS Scotland will attend the afternoon session and will speak and take questions on the change that must occur in statutory services to allow community-led health to play its full part in tackling health inequalities.

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.
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.
Find out more about CHEX and our network of local community-led health organisations by selecting from the buttons below, or for more about what we do, use the menu on the left.
