The purpose of the network is to develop local partnership working and planning for health improvement activity in the Oban Lorn and Inner Isles area. Our network has representation from public sector, business and voluntary sector.
We meet on a regular basis throughout the year with short meetings (max 2 hours) to inform, share and learn from each other to support our communities in Oban, Lorn and the Isles.

NETWORK MEETING DATES – 2019 Wednesday 22nd May – 9.30- 11.30 in Oban Youth Cafe
Have you got a project that would benefit from a helping hand? For advice and guidance, please email Kirsty McLuckie, Oban, Lorn and the Isles Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year OLIHWN funded projects throughout the Oban Lorn and Inner Isles area which helped young and old, from support services to young people ,homeless, training to build community capacity, outdoor activities and much much more.
The funding has supported projects which have a focus on wellness instead of illness to improve the health of the population. Priority given to initiatives that demonstrated reducing health inequalities, breaking down barriers to participation and which was able to demonstrate how the planned project supported delivery of our four Health Improvement Plan Priorities :
- Theme 1 – Getting the best start in life
- Theme 2 – Working to ensure fairness
- Theme 3 – Connecting people with support in their community
- Theme 4 – Focusing on Wellness not illness
