Latest edition of CHEX-Point newsletter now available

The Winter 2010 edition of CHEX-Point includes the second instalment of our two-part feature on tools and approaches to assist community-led organisations affect change in health improvement and tackling health inequalities.

Topics covered include the Visioning Outcomes in Community Engagement (VOiCE) tool and our own Health Issues in the Community training course which has recently been revised and which uses challenging and stimulating approaches to examine the social model of health as well as tackling a range of issues and topics relevant to individuals and communities.

Also included in this issue is an article on the activities of the Communities for Health Advisory Group (CHAG) which was formed as a direct result of CHEX’s first national conference, held in Glasgow in November 2009, when delegates decided to take collective action on five key outcomes developed during the day.

We also hear about a team of enthusiastic volunteers who have been promoting a range of community health messages within the local communities of East Dunbartonshire as the result of a partnership between the Volunteer Centre East Dunbartonshire and the local Community Health Partnership.
