During Self-management week, last week, the ALLIANCE announced that 26 Scottish projects are to receive a total of £650,000 to transform support and integrated care for people living with long term conditions – and Moray Wellbeing Hub are on the list!
Our project aim is to develop Champions to lead self-management activities in their localities. Champions will be helped to host training, act as peer connectors and group leaders. There will also be further support to strengthen links for Champions to be involved in Health and Social Care integration processes.
This investment from the Self Management Fund, administered by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland is made possible by the continued support and investment from the Scottish Government of £2 million annually, as well as an additional investment of £150,000 from the William Grant Foundation.
The Fund provides a unique opportunity for people with long term conditions to lead the way in partnership with community and voluntary organisations to transform self management in Scotland by developing and embedding existing approaches as well as trialling new ways of working.
The ALLIANCE Chief Executive Ian Welsh said:
“The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland, working closely with the Scottish Government and a range of strategic partners including over 2,300 members, continues to drive the self management agenda founded on the idea that people are leading partners in the management of their own conditions.”
“Two Years on since Health and Social Care Integration was implemented in Scotland, the Self Management Fund: Working Together to Strengthen Integration is providing a huge boost to the types of support in our communities which enhance and strengthen integrated care for people living with long term conditions and their unpaid carers based on the principles of self management.”
“We are pleased to have the William Grant Foundation on board, providing additional investment to support the development and delivery of self management approaches across Scotland.”
