Physical disability draft strategy consultation

The Health and Social Care Partnership is holding a consultation on the Scottish Borders Physical Disability Strategy, A Fairer Borders for People with a Physical Disability or Long-Term Condition and their Carers

The strategy has been developed with the support of key local representatives including

  • health and social care professionals
  • members of the third and independent sectors
  • housing specialists
  • service users and carers 

The consultation is being held to give people the opportunity to provide additional feedback and will run from 3 April to 2 July 2018.

Ability Borders Roadshows

Information will also be provided at a series of events being held by Ability Borders. There will be an opportunity to hear about the Strategy and the range of services and support available for people with a physical disability or long-term condition.

You can book a place at the information event or just pop in for the last hour to have a chat about the draft strategy.
