    Time: 9.00am - 1.00pm

    Power, Health and Social Justice

    The focus of this Healthier Future Forum is on how power might be redistributed more equally with communities and how we can collectively realise the vision for greater community empowerment in Scotland. The intention of our GHFF events is to engage a broad audience in dialogue on emerging issues of relevance to health and health inequalities. In doing so, we seek to allow different perspectives to be shared and new learning to emerge to support progress on these important issues. This event is aimed at community organisations, individuals working to improve and change different aspects of their communities and services, community councils and third and public sector colleagues. 

    At the event we will present our new animation on ‘Power as a health and social justice issue’, produced in partnership with NHS Health Scotland. We will discuss the evidence behind this, explore opportunities within the national context including the Community Empowerment Act and support the sharing of perspectives, experiences and learning with those who are already working to redistribute power in different settings. The format for the morning will be brief scene setting in plenary followed by interactive workshops.
