Start Learning Now

We know that many people are nervous about getting in touch, but we can support you at your own pace to start learning.

Some people find their own answers and solutions quickly after a few meetings with a Coordinator. Others might find they need more time and support to get things in place, including the support of other organisations, volunteer support or the loan of a computer or device.

Some people come to us with a goal in mind e.g. getting a qualification, or learning a new useful skill such as learning how to Skype their family.

Some people are not sure where to begin but they've taken that first step to try something new.

Our Information Service is open to anyone with a disability or health condition, including those who support them, across the whole of Scotland.
