Early in 2015 Community Food and Health Scotland, CHEX and VHS organised a series of learning exchanges and study visits between public sector workers and those working in the community and voluntary health sector. Reports for these events have now been completed and are available to download, along with videos from the days.
The first exchange took place in Glasgow’s Teacher Building on 3rd March and focused on the shared task of tackling Scotland’s health inequalities. Download report: Learning Exchange – Glasgow
