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.
