Health Scotland Community Events

Health Scotland recently ran a series of public events in a community setting. This gave them an opportunity to capture opinions about a community people live, work and volunteer in.

This was a chance for the organisation to talk about a fairer, healthier Scotland with people in their own community.

You can see and hear what these conversations were about below:

Johnstone Castle

NHS Health Scotland worked with Active communities, a community health project based in Paisley delivering and supporting physical, community sport and health and wellbeing across Renfrewshire.

This video shows a conversation with people living, working and volunteering in the Johnstone Castle area.

Lochee

NHS Health Scotland worked with Dundee Healthy Living Initiative whose mission is to promote positive health and wellbeing by delivering health improvement activities as identified by local people.

This video shows a conversation with people living, working and volunteering in the Lochee area.

Burnfoot

NHS Health Scotland worked with Borders Healthy Living Network, a network involved in food and health work, physical activity, mental health and volunteering. NHS Health Scotland also worked with Burnfoot Community Futures, a charity aiming to improve the well-being, quality of life and opportunities of the people of Hawick.

The majority of people shown in the video do not live in Burnfoot but are associated with the local Healthy Living Network.
