Community-led Health - past programmes

Over the past three years we have worked with stakeholders across Scotland to support a shared understanding of, and strategic commitment to, a community-led approach to health improvement and addressing health inequalities through the Healthy Communities: Meeting the Shared Challenge programme.

Meeting the Shared Challenge banner 

Healthy Communities: Meeting the Shared Challenge was a Scottish Government funded programme that aimed to encourage and support community-led approaches to health improvement throughout Scotland.  The programme came to an end in March 2010 with a conference in February which aimed to share experiences and lessons from across Scotland, to link community-led health to key policy agendas, and help signpost the resources that are now available to support community-led health.
