ECHF is a leading voice in driving the health inequality agenda in Edinburgh.
We provide leaders of local community health organisations with the opportunity to connect, learn together and to share best practice and resources. We fundamentally believe that we are stronger together.
The Forum has created the opportunity to develop partnerships with other organisation or in areas where didnt happen previously
ECHF is a great support for networking and learning!
We are always stronger together - ECHF provides joint information, voice and presence for community health initiatives in the City. PCHP very much values the forum and its work on behalf of our organsiation and others
