Creating a healthier Inverclyde

ianbruce ianbruce  •  2019-07-09  •    2 comments  • 

Everyone wants to be healthy and well but it isn't always easy.  There is a proven link between wealth and health - better off people tend to be healthier, have fewer health conditions and live longer.  That isn't right and everybody should be doing something to reduce that gap.  

How can we tackle this gap together?

  • How can we make sure that money is spent as effectively as possible?  
  • How can people and communities contribute to improving their own health and that of others?
  • What's the best way for people to access services?
  • How can we all work together better?

All thoughts welcome - this issue is really important so there are no bad ideas.

    The allotments strategy should have a funding pot for community groups to establish new community gardens.

    Activities should be community based rather than centrally based. Services and agencies need to do more to connect to local areas through community facility networks. If any agency wants to do that, contact me.
