Citizens panels in action
Our meetings work well, where there is a balance of family carers and members with a learning disability.
We discuss a lot of topics at the meetings. Members request specific speakers, for example:
- charging for social work services
- keys to Life (the Scottish Government's long term strategy
- making choices, keeping safe policy and guidance.
- Borders Railway project
- fire safety in the home
- community policing
- learning disability nursing at the Borders General Hospital
- welfare benefits changes
- work and volunteering
