Local citizens panels
Local citizen panels meet five times a year and are for people who:
- have a learning disability
- care for a family member who has a learning disability.
What does being a panel member mean?
By being a panel member, you can:
- help to make sure that learning disability services meet your needs
- raise concerns about services so that improvements can be made
- take part in consultations about services and give feedback
- put forward ideas for things that will help improve quality of life for people with a learning disability
- work together with other groups to get things done
- get and share information about the things that are happening in the learning disability services and in your local community.
Who can join?
You can join a local panel if you live in the Scottish Borders, are aged 14+ and have a learning disability or care for someone who has.
