The Highland Green Health Partnership is one of four area-wide partnerships developed in Scotland. It will contribute towards "Our Natural Health Service", an action programme being led by Scottish Natural Heritage.
Partnership is made of representatives from NHS Highland; SNH; The Highland Council; The Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA); Highlife Highland (HLH); The University of the Highland and Islands (UHI), The Highland Environment Forum; The Highland Third Sector Interface (HTSI); Paths for All; Forestry Commission Scotland and practitioners in health and social care. Our vision is to:
"Develop opportunities and build on existing resources to support individuals and communities to improve their health and wellbeing, and build resilience through engaging with and appreciating the natural environment".
To get more people to use the outdoor environment and more regularly
To contribute to reducing health inequalities by targeting activity at those who are most in need
To co-ordinate partnership efforts on use of the outdoor environment for health
To identify existing assets, make links between them, and identify gaps in provision
To develop a network of those with an interest in promoting the outdoor environment for health
To create a shared learning environment
