Healthy Living Centre

Overview of Services

Core to the work of the HLC is to promote health and wellbeing in its broadest sense across the Upper Springfield and Whiterock areas, while addressing health inequalities. This is achieved through the use of a community development approach using the LEAP for Health model (Learning, Evaluation & Planning). The HLC provides innovative, organic solutions to meet local needs, while working in partnership with other organisations to create sustainable health improvement structures and programmes.
