Getting the Message Across: Top Tips for Community-led health

At CHEX's recent ‘Making Scotland Better’ event a number of participants commented on the challenges of communicating the strength and value of community-led health, especially to those practitioners who are unaware or unfamiliar with the approach.

This prompted us to produce these ‘top tips’. They are intended as a brief guide to ‘getting the message across’ about the benefits of community-led health, and offer a route into the substantial body of work that you can use to support and promote community-led health approaches.

The resource includes tips for explaining community-led health, demonstrating value, getting started and much more.

Top Tips is a trial at this stage, so if you are interested in receiving further sheets about any particular issues, or have any comments or suggestion,  please contact Janet Muir, email
