Helensburgh and Lomond Health and Wellbeing Network (formerly Public Health Network) is a pro-active group of statutory and voluntary organisations coming together to deliver better health related outcomes for all residents within Helensburgh and Lomond. The network meets every four to six weeks in the Kirkmichael Centre, Helensburgh.
Heelensburghand Lomond Health and Wellbeing Network (HLHWN) has four priorities in its workplan:
- improving mental wellbeing;
- reducing alcohol related deaths & hospital admission;
- reducing illness due to obesity; and
- early years-ensuring the healthy development of young children and their parents/ carers.
A small Health and and Wellbeing grant (formerly the Health Improvement Fund grant) can be awarded for work that delivers on these targets and is carried out by either a statutory or a voluntary organisation. Helensburgh and Lomond HWN has £21,000 to distribute. An application form and guidance pack are attached.
In February 2011 the Network held an open day to publicise its work and increase the membership. It is currently working on a directory of members, which should be available soon.
The Helensburgh and Lomond HWN is coordinated by Argyll and Bute Council Community Development Officer Morevain Martin, who can be contacted on 01436 658740 or emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org
