Welcome to the Broomhouse Health Strategy Group Website

Broomhouse Health Strategy Group

We are Broomhouse Health Strategy Group a community-led health project in South West Edinburgh.

Our aim is to improve health and well-being within the communities of Broomhouse, Sighthill and Parkhead by providing a variety of social health activities.

We provide a range of free services including a volunteer–run fruit and vegetable co-op, a home delivery service, cookery classes, physical activities including exercise classes and a walking group.

We also run a confidential health drop-in service, and run the local Timebank.  Local people are central to the planning and delivery of all our services.

We provide a range of volunteering opportunities, and could not operate without the invaluable support of these volunteers.

We work in close partnership with many local organisations to address gaps in health improvement activities.

The Community Health Hub is a partnership project between us and The Broomhouse Centre which aims to improve the health and well-being of the local community.

Fruit and Veg Shop

We provide low cost, easily accessible, good quality health fresh produce. As well as fresh fruit and vegetables we also stock milk, eggs, bread, lentils, oats, rice, pasta, couscous, tinned beans, a range of baking products and a wide range of healthy dried fruit and nut snacks.

Not only is the food great value but we can help you with ideas for cooking, as we sell Soup Bags for £1 and Meal Recipe Bags from 75p to £3, with all the ingredients required for 4 servings and the recipe instructions too!

You can visit us daily through the week, we are open every weekday morning. We are easy to find in the centre of Broomhouse – just look for the colourful Broomhouse Market area that we transformed in 2012 with the help of lots of volunteers! Our shop is run by volunteers, so you will always find a friendly face and a chat waiting for you when you call in.

Unlike large supermarkets you don’t need to buy in bulk to get the best prices and if you can’t see what you want just ask! Our produce is delivered daily, so if you have a particular request, we can order it especially for you, for the following day.

For those with mobility or health issues we offer a Free Home Delivery Service or Bag Carrying Service for produce from our co-op. This could help you or someone you know.
