SCHW Consoritum Model

 

SCHW is a partnership organisation which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Scotland. SCHW wants to improve the health of Scotland’s disadvantaged communities by embedding community led approaches to health improvement in communities and reducing health inequalities. SCHW has 74 community-led partner organisations operating in Scotland, they employ over 500 staff, involve 3000 active volunteers and engage over 300,000 beneficiaries in health enhancing activities and events each year.

Our consortium approach ensures that our partner organisations are empowered to be involved in larger national contracts. It is a way of moving beyond local funding opportunities and to do specific pieces of work that may not be funded at a local level. The consortium approach offers

organisations the opportunity to:

  • Secure contracts or funding that would not otherwise be available.
  • Extend their service provision into new fields.
  • Gain new expertise or to extend their activities in to new geographies or other community groups.
