The Health and Wellness Hub
The Health and Wellness Hub

Charity registered in Scotland SC047372

The Health and Wellness Hub is registered charity set up due to a recognised gap between exclusion and access to health services within North Lanarkshire, in particular for those who face greatest disadvantage. Working in local communities that are in the top 10% data zones of multiple deprivation (SIMD 2012) the organisation provides a service to individuals within these communities and who face disadvantage and are unable to access mainstream services.

The services we provide include running weekly community based heath & wellbeing activities, volunteer opportunities for those who experience disadvantage and health and wellbeing services to local businesses (our Social enterprise)
