MORE Communities at the Centre - Lunch and Launch, 30th March 2016

On Wednesday 30th March 2016 colleagues from across the CHEX network came together for a 'lunch and launch' of our latest case studies of community-led health:
MORE Communities at the Centre.
 
The event was a chance for people to hear directly from the people have worked at, volunteered for and used the organisations featured in the publication - each highlighting good practice and valuable lessons about their community-led approaches.
 
The organisations featured were:

  • Collydean Community Connections in Fife
  • Craigend Resource Centre in Inverclyde
  • Just Like Us in Glasgow
  • Old Knock School in the Isle of Lewis
  • Ripple Project in Edinburgh

While they have different starting points, a mixture of expertise and experience and varying levels of support, they all have a common goal of involving community members in the health priorities that matter to them.  The case studies show the significant contribution each organisation makes to health and wellbeing in their local communities.
 
It was great to hear the personal insights and stories of the impact that these organisations have had - both on their local communities and people's lives.
 
The full report from the event is available here
