Directory of local groups/projects who are offering specific support during the current COVID-19 pandemic »

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

The ALLIANCE has administered the Self Management Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government since 2009.

Gaun Yersel’ The Self Management Strategy for Long Term Conditions in Scotland was written in partnership with people living with long term conditions and their unpaid carers in 2008, and adopted by the Scottish Government. One of the key recommendations in the strategy was to establish a fund to support self management approaches across Scotland.

Since 2009 the Self Management Fund has provided grants supporting over 270 projects in Scotland across four iterations of the Fund.
