Support in the Right Direction

Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living and The Action Group

This partnership between Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living and The Action Group supports people who have a social care package across Edinburgh and the Lothians through peer support groups and learning opportunities to promote self-directed support. User led peer support groups help disabled people, older people, people with long-term health conditions, and carers to share their lived experience around self-directed support and generate collective mobilisation on issues affecting people’s lives and their experience of self-directed support. Training and workshop sessions are provided on SDS and related topics for social care users, care providers and local authorities. LCIL lead on delivery of the peer support groups, while The Action Group co-facilitates peer support for carers from BAME communities with LCIL.
