News from the Network: Healthy Valleys Grassroots Project - video



CHEX Network member Healthy Valleys has produced a video for their Grassroots Project, which offers free support to pregnant women and families with children under 5 in rural South Lanarkshire.

Focused on improving the health and wellbeing of parents and children, the project supports women and families in a range of ways: from making sure pregnant women get to all their essential ante-natal health care appointments, to encouraging and enabling families to eat healthier, exercise more and meeting other families. 

The video highlights some of the volunteers, workers and people who are involved in the project, highlighting the importance of the service due to the highly rural nature of South Lanarkshire. 

It's a great video and really shows how the project benefits parents and children. View it here.

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.
