What Matters Hubs


ALISS is a national digital programme enabling people and professionals to find and share information on resources, services, groups, and support in their local communities and online.

The aim is to ensure that everyone in Scotland has the right information, at the right time, about resources that are available to help them live well and stay connected to their community.

ALISS can help you find information about resources like:

  • groups that support social and community connection (e.g. local choirs, book groups, befriending)
  • activities that offer opportunities for getting more active and for getting outdoors (e.g. badminton clubs, community gardens)
  • services that provide support for managing long term conditions
  • practical, legal, and financial support (e.g. money advice, advocacy services)
  • digital technology that can support health and social care (e.g. online forums, health related mobile apps).

Connecting you to your community

To find out what's available in your community, visit the ALISS website

By putting your postcode, town or city into the search box, you'll be able to see the services, groups and activities listed for your locality that could help to support your health and wellbeing. 

Organisations should also visit the ALISS website to add their information to the list of what's available in local communities.
