Established in 2003 as Dundee Healthy Living Initiative, the Community Health Team is a partnership between NHS Tayside, Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership, Dundee City Council, and importantly, local people themselves. Our team provides capacity-building support to local people and practitioners to develop activities that will improve physical and mental health and wellbeing in designated communities in the city.

Our Approach

The Community Health Team uses a community development approach to improving health, which means adopting the following principles:

  • Local people identifying their own health needs and solutions

  • A social model of health

  • Reducing health inequalities

  • Empowerment and building community capacity

  • Partnership working

  • Sustainability

  • Collective action
