New disability group for Borders

A working group is setting up a new information service for people with disabilities and long term conditions in the Scottish Borders. The group has been seeking the views of people who may use the service, and their carers, in recent months.

A series of focus groups has now been arranged to find out more about what people with disabilities and long term conditions would like the service to provide and how it should operate. The meetings will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 12th February – Eyemouth
  • Friday 13th February – Peebles
  • Wednesday 18th February – Hawick
  • Friday 20th February – Galashiels

Venues and times to be confirmed, but in the meantime if you would like more information or would like to attend one of the groups, please contact Kathleen Travers on 01896 757290 or e-mail kathleen@borderscarevoice.org.uk
