B Healthy Together

Charity registered in Scotland SC023736

We are a community-led health project in South West Edinburgh. Our aim is to improve health and well-being within the communities of Broomhouse, Sighthill and Parkhead by providing a variety of social health activities.
We provide a range of free services including a volunteer–run fruit and vegetable co-op, a home delivery service, cookery classes, physical activities including exercise classes and a walking group. We also run a confidential health drop-in service, and run the local Timebank. Local people are central to the planning and delivery of all our services.

We are a small but vibrant organisation with a friendly atmosphere amongst our close team of staff and volunteers. We were shortlisted for the ‘Commitment to Health category of the Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards 2015.

They may also be asked to take photos or video if this iis something that interests them.
