Our National Conference 2017: People, Policy and Practice

Tuesday 21st November, Edinburgh 

Our National Conference is just around the corner, bringing people from community-led health together to network, share and learn from each other’s practice. The focus will be on how our practice is shaped by, and is shaping, current policy in Scotland.

People are at the heart of recent policy developments in Scotland, including the Community Empowerment Act, the integration of health and social care and the proposed Local Democracy Bill. Participation, prevention and partnership are being talked about at a high level, but  what does this mean in terms of practice? How are things changing on the ground for communities and, in particular, people experiencing poverty, exclusion and the poorest health outcome? 

Join the waiting list

Due to huge demand, we now have a waiting list in place. 

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.
