Who we are

Getting Better Together Ltd (GBT) is a community centred health initiative which was established in 2000 with the aim of promoting the health and wellbeing of residents living in North Lanarkshire.

Since its creation, GBT has become a leader in the arena of community-led health improvement with a record of success delivering high quality, effective community-led health improvement services. It is a successful, respected organisation widely recognised by statutory, voluntary sector partners and the individuals we work with.

Over the last 23 years, Getting Better Together Ltd has witnessed the sort of transformations normally reserved for feel good films. At GBT, sports, exercise, healthy eating, and other community participatory activities aren't just about improving health - they are turning people's lives around, transforming stereotypes and giving our community opportunities they were previously excluded from.

GBT are a courageous organisation, pushing boundaries and challenging ingrained perceptions about what it means to be healthy.

Everything GBT does is inspired and informed by the practical needs of the people on our doorstep.

Working with our communities, we ensure our local people have access to, and are involved in, the design and delivery of programmes and services created to help improve their health, wellbeing and to build their life skills.

The GBT board is made up of local directors, and we have over thirty staff and forty volunteers.

Board of Directors

Getting Better Together Ltd is required to have a Board of Directors (Trustees) comprising of residents of, those with a place of employment or business in, or those carrying out voluntary work within North Lanarkshire.

Our trustees can use their skills and experience to have a direct influence over a cause that they care about. It is a rewarding role, but there are responsibilities meaning they need to give up some of their time to help our charity succeed.

Charities have a special place in our society because they are committed to helping others. This creates a level of trust from the public that we must protect.

Our trustees help run an effective charity that shows how we operate for the good of others.

If you have an interest in becoming a trustee, you can email us at contact@shottshealthyliving.com
