The Scottish Health Council supports and promotes communities and health and social care organisations working together to shape services and help ensure they best meet the needs of those using them, their families and carers. Support we provide includes meeting with communities and groups to raise awareness of the spectrum of different ways people can give feedback, share views, raise concerns and use their experiences to help shape services, and of the support available to do so.  We also run free Voices Scotland workshops which to help people understand the structure of health and social care and how to work together with services to identify and deliver improvements. If you would like us to come and speak to your community or group or run a workshop, please contact us at our local office.

Long Business Description:

Since 1921 we have stood for and provided support to veterans and their families.

When servicemen and women return to civilian life after serving with the Armed Forces some are in need of community and friendship, maybe as a result of their experiences in the services or purely because they are no longer part of the ‘military family’ they had come to rely. We make a difference every day to the lives of those veterans through our comradeship and befriending programme, developing strong communities and supporting remembrance.

Our large family network is spread across Scotland and helps support veterans and their families to get on with their lives and assists those who require assistance.
