Lanarkshire Greenspace Health & Wellbeing Partnership Stakeholder Event NEW DATE 28th Feb 2014

Thursday, November 21, 2013 By: Fiona | Tagged: , , |


There is a growing evidence base on the significant contribution that contact with nature can make to many aspects of physical health, mental health and wellbeing both for the general population and for those in high risk groups. The Lanarkshire Greenspace Health & Wellbeing Partnership was developed to work collaboratively to maximise the use of Greenspace opportunities, building on the current good work, to improve health & wellbeing across North andSouth Lanarkshire.

The partnership includes; NHS Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire Council, North Lanarkshire Council, South Lanarkshire Leisure & Culture, North Lanarkshire Leisure, Voluntary Action South Lanarkshire, Voluntary Action North Lanarkshire, Health Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and Paths for All.


The partnership has been tasked with developing a multi-agency Lanarkshire Greenspace Health & Well-being Partnership Action Plan for endorsement by key partners, with actions focussed on embedding the concept of greenspace activities into partnership plans, developing ownership, actions and building sustainability beyond the plan. Through working with national and local partners an outline action plan has been produced. One of the key aims of the event is to consult with wider stakeholders on the outline action plan at this early stage to inform and influence the developing action plan.

You will also here from a keynote speaker who will set the landscape for this work and see examples of local activities. After lunch you will have the option of taking part in an experiential learning activity to see firsthand the range of greenspace activities available and feel the benefits direct.


Physical and mental health improvement is everyone's business therefore it is important that representation at the event includes stakeholders from a wide range of backgrounds including health promotion, public health, health and social care services, mainstream services, service users and carers, members of the public, private sector agencies and the voluntary sector.



We would like to welcome you to host a stall at the event showcasing your organisation or a particular greenspace, health and well-being programme you have been involved in. Please contact Fiona Ingram (details at back of flyer) to discuss or confirm your interest.
