Issue 8 of Engage magazine now available

Engage aims to bring some of the key themes emerging in community-led health across Scotland to the forefront, and the latest issuCover of Engage issue 8e focuses on community assets and an ‘asset-based' approach to health improvement. 

We start with an article which challenges us to think about how we form our views of communities in ‘Thinking about community assets' and we look at a case study from Eigg where we hear about the impact of community ownership on the health and wellbeing of this island's residents.

This edition's ‘Picture This' section illustrates the links between community-led health and topic-based logic modelling. And almost a year down the line, we revisit Renfrewshire to find out what has been going on there since the Meeting the Shared Challenge programme ended in March 2010.

Engage also features news and information from CHEX and NHS Health Scotland to keep you up to date with developments.
