Its Self Management Week 2014!

Posted on: Tue 30th Sep 2014

Self management is about people living with long term conditions being in ‘the driving seat’.  It supports people to live their lives better, on their terms.

Self management supports and encourages people living with long term conditions to access information and to develop skills to find out what’s right for their condition and, most importantly, right for them. A self management approach enables people to make informed choices about how and when to draw on different kinds of support.  Making informed decisions, with or without the support of others, is how we all manage our lives.

The ALLIANCE is looking forward to celebrating Self-Management Week 2014 which takes place from 29th September to 3rd October.
With 15,000 people volunteering at the Common Wealth Games, the theme for this year is volunteering, as it can be a tool for self management to increase skills, self esteem and wellbeing.

Examples for how you can be involved as a member include;

  • Joining us to celebrate self-management achievements from across Scotland at the 2014 Self-Management Awards in Edinburgh on the 1st October.
  • Taking a picture that you can send in to support the Twitter campaign, “V is for Volunteering”.
  • Sharing your personal experience of self- management and what it means to you.
