Changes is a new collective advocacy group facilitated by Ceartas. The group aims to bring people together to have a say in what’s happening in their local area. Members are keen to be involved in decision making, planning and consultation processes.
Last week Changes held their first ever consultation on what would need to happen to make Scotland a healthier place to live. The event focused on:
- Being treated fairly, with dignity and respect
- Being a part of your local community
- Support to make healthier choices.
Group activities were designed to encourage participation and discussion from the event and importantly to ensure that participants were encouraged to think of “solutions” and not just the “problems”. The session started off with an opportunity to consider the barriers to the 3 key areas followed by discussion around ways to overcome these.
A copy of the report from the day can be found in the link below.
