The next meeting of the Cross Party Group on Health Inequalities will take place at 6pm on the 21st January. Richard Lyle MSP, Co Convenor of the CPG, will chair the meeting.
We will hear from the following people:
- Martin Tod, Chief Executive, Men’s Health Forum – the men’s health charity that researches, raises awareness, advocates and shares good practice (they are London based but have a UK remit and are very keen to reach out and engage with us as there is no equivalent Scottish body): https://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/
- Nathan Sparling, Chief Executive Officer, HIV Scotland – the national policy, information and campaigning charity that supports people with HIV, with the ambition of getting Scotland to zero new infections, zero HIV-related stigma and discrimination and zero HIV-related deaths by 2030: https://www.hiv.scot/
- Craig Wilson, General Manager of Big Hearts Community Trust – the charity of Heart of Midlothian Football Club, whose main focus up to 2021 is to support individuals and families at risk of social isolation. Their programme The Changing Room promotes men’s positive mental health through the power of football. http://www.bighearts.org.uk/programmes/the-changing-room/
