Anyone who is interested in improving the mental physical and emotional health and wellbeing of people on Bute is more than welcome to join the network – we have members from NHS, Education, Social work, from local community organisations, health based businesses, and representatives from the community too.


We held our Holly Jolly Christmas Jumper Christmas Jumper Get Together on the 13th December, thanks to everyone who took the time to come and talk to us – we have lots of ideas to take forward in the new year, anyone who would still like to contribute to our strategic plan will still have the opportunity to do so.  Big thanks to the fabulous volunteers at the Lade Centre for looking after us so well.  Pictures to follow…


Please join us for the local Bute Health & Wellbeing Network meetings…
