Dumfries and Galloway Libraries support #SMW14

Posted on: Tue 30th Sep 2014

Dumfries and Galloway Council in partnership with the ALLIANCE, raise awareness of the library’s role in supporting self management, with their NEW information pull out

The local library is one way of gaining information and accessing opportunities that can aid self management as well as improving health and well-being. Dumfries and Galloway libraries offer a huge range of services that can support people including Healthy Reading, Learning Support, activity groups and volunteering opportunities.

As more of us live with long term conditions we need to make sure people are supported to be leading partners in managing their health and wellbeing, feeling able to make informed decisions and able to draw on different kinds of support and information- like those available in your local library.

The ALLIANCE Chief Executive Ian Welsh said:

“Self Management Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the excellent work taking place to make sure people living with long term conditions are supported to build the skills and confidence to look after ourselves.

Dumfries and Galloway Council, Library Access & Development Officer Allyson Jardine said:

Libraries across Dumfries and Galloway offer easy access to a range of self-help resources including books, leaflets and free access to the internet. Self Management Week is a great way to let everyone know about the support available in their local communities.”
