CHEX Network and Partners

Supporting the exchange of good practice between community-led organisations and their partners.

CHEX works with a range of organisations and individuals from across Scotland that are working to improve health in their communities and address health inequalities. 

Our network of local organisations share information via our newsletters and publications and take part in our conferences, seminars and other practice development activities. If your organisation would like to be part of the network, sign up here

Search our community-led health database

CHEX now hosts a new database of community-led health organisations in Scotland.

The database allows you to search for projects by area, topic and target group, and provides you with the information you need to contact community-led health organisations in your area.

Search the database now!

We would like to welcome projects to feature in the database to ensure that we have a true representation of the breadth of community-led health activity across Scotland.
If you are a community-led organisation working to address health inequalities, then get in touch, and we will tell you how you can be included.


Some of our partners also host searchable databases of community-led organisations. Why not search the Community Food and Health Scotland database or the Trellis database for organisations working on food and health issues in your area. 

Local and National Networks

CHEX has an extensive network of organisations and individuals from across Scotland, which contribute to and benefit from the work of CHEX.
