About

Hull en santé (HES) is one of five local social development tables in the Gatineau city. Social development tables are also found throughout the Outaouais territory within the four organisations. These organizations are responsible for social development in a given territory.

The four tables on the territory of Gatineau are grouped together at ConcertAction. HES is a group of organizations whose mission is to work collectively to improve the living conditions of citizens of the Hull sector, especially in vulnerable communities or at risk of becoming so. It aims to create living environments that promote the development of citizens. HES brings together more than 40 partners in its territory.

These partners come from several communities municipal, paramunicipal, Health, Sports, Community, Primary and secondary school, child care and various regional non-profit organizations. These organizations work collectively on six subjects, including community engagement, adoption of a physically active lifestyle, healthy eating, school retention, crime prevention and early childhood development.
