Health and Wellbeing

Our Health and Wellbeing topic covers all aspects of health - both physical and mental.  Environmental quality problems like litter, dog fouling, graffiti and flytipping all affect the quality of life of people living in Scotland, with higher levels of depression and illness amongst people who live in areas with poor local environmental quality.

Place Standard Tool - How Good is Our Place?

The Place Standard Tool provides a simple framework to structure conversations about place. It allows you to think about both physical elements of a place (buildings, spaces, and transport links) and social aspects (for example whether people feel they have a say in decision making). A useful tool for older pupils to assess their School Grounds.
