Health is made at home is all about creating health in the home, the workplace, the school, the community and wider society. Creating the conditions for people to be healthy and helping them to be so. It tells the stories of some of the country's leading health creators in businesses, towns and communities. The NHS has been fighting for our lives in the last few months but it can't deal with many of today's problems of stress, loneliness, addictions, obesity and poverty - it can only do the repairs. The book challenges our assumptions about health and calls for everyone to be involved in building a healthy and health-creating society.

Covid-19 has reminded us vividly of the importance of communities, education, the environment and employment to our health and well-being – and it has highlighted the inequalities and entrenched disadvantage faced by many of our fellow citizens. Black Lives Matter has reinforced the message. There has never been a better or more important time to act. And, as Nigel Crisp showed in Health is made at home, the NHS and the health professionals can’t do everything by themselves. All of us - employers, teachers, community leaders, architects, and families - can create health and help build a healthy and health-creating society. The first seminar in this series brings together people with enormous expertise in health, parliament, central government, the housing sector and the NHS to discuss how we can build a healthy and health-creating society.

Health is made at home, hospitals are for repairs has pointed to the vital role that communities play in health and wellbeing. At their best, communities are places where people know you, where there is meaning and purpose, where you are in control of your lives, where you have a sense of belonging and can thrive. At their worst, chaotic difficult circumstances lead to increased risk of physical and mental health problems,  as well as to all kinds of challenges for wider society. How can we build and develop true communities? What’s the role of the health, education, housing and other sectors and professionals? And how can we join the dots between all the organisations and people working in a community to maximise their impact? The second seminar in this series brings together people with enormous expertise in working in communities of different kinds – in housing estates, with homeless people, in advocating for the health needs of people from black, Asian and minority communities, and across the whole of Scotland.

Health is made in the home and in the community. Communities of all sorts, whether place-based or communities of belonging are very important for our health and wellbeing. They offer relationships, meaning and purpose, and - as this webinar will demonstrate -  can help us take more control of our lives. This webinar, facilitated by C2 Connecting Communities, is centred around the work of two local groups which have made major contributions to their communities over several years.
