Organisation aims and objectives

We aim to work with people of South West Edinburgh to improve their Health and Wellbeing. We aim to work holistically at the Health Agency where we believe a healthy person is someone whose body, mind and feelings are working in harmony. To meet the many different needs of the community we offer a wide range of services from one on one work, to group work.
