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.
