Our Lifestyle Development team have been working tirelessly since 2001 to improve the lives and the experiences of older people in East Ayrshire.

There are many activities that we are involved in to help improve the health and wellbeing of people in our communities. We are here to support you to make improvements in your lives and in your communities.

The Community Health Activity Team (CHAT) was previously known as Community Health Improvement Partnership (CHIP). The team work across six place based areas providing basic health checks, and offers information and advice on healthy living, mental health, alcohol and drug use.

Free health checks

Come along to have a friendly chat about healthier lifestyle choices. We offer checks for:

  • blood pressure
  • weight
  • body mass index (BMI)
  • body fat percentage
