Health Inequalities in Scotland

Monday 6 February 2023 - 10:30 to 12:00


Social Enterprise Scotland

A report was launched by the Fraser of Allander Institute in November 2022, on Health Inequalities in Scotland. The report examines trends in key socioeconomic determinants of health in Scotland since 1999, the year of the establishment of the Scottish parliament. The report is based on six thematic chapters which examine trends in: the labour market; household income and financial security; education and social mobility; housing; public services; and neighbourhoods. A seventh chapter examines trends in socioeconomic determinants of health during the Covid-19 pandemic and the emerging cost-of-living crisis.

However, there is also a huge number of social enterprises across Scotland working to address this gap. So, this online session will look at the research and data surrounding Health Inequalities, but also what social enterprises are doing in practice to address health issues.

Please join Social Enterprise Scotland as they hear from The Fraser of Allander Institute on the key findings and trends of the report. Then from Morphfit, a social enterprise specifically addressing health and mobility issues for people who experiences a range of health issues.

There will be time for a Q&A session after and a general discussion around Health Inequalities in Scotland, with a focus on what solutions are already being offered.  

Social Enterprise Scotland would love to see you and to hear about your own experiences in this area, the challenges you face, and how you are trying to address them.

For any questions regarding the event please contact Georgie Price.
