Highlands & Islands Ecosystem for rural mental health and active healthy ageing


Healthy Ageing Challenge Overview: the £98 million ‘healthy ageing programme’ will drive the development of new products and services which will help people to live in their homes for longer, tackle loneliness and isolation, and increase independence, self-management and wellbeing.

Hear about the programme and how to get involved. Registration from 10.30.

Online access will be available for participants who are unable to join in person on the day.

Ecosystem meetings are held quarterly, with discussion, debate, workshops and networking focusing on key developments and opportunities for technology in rural mental health and active healthy ageing within the Highlands and Islands.

The theme of these meetings can be suggested by any member and the Ecosystem team will do our best to facilitate events which meet the needs of all our members.
