Self Management Week 2017
Self Management Week 2017 will run between 2 October and 6 October.
The Self Management Team are gearing up for the 2017 Self Management Week and we want to raise the awareness and shout about the huge benefits self management can bring to people’s lives.
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 is not a replacement for services, it’s about self-determination in partnership with supporters.
To make a truly valuable impact and get people talking about Self Management we want you to get involved and we want to know about it. Read our Top Ten Tips to get involved in this year’s Self Management Week here.
Last year, the theme was ‘Powerful Partnerships’. More information for 2017's theme and the Self Management Awards will be made available soon.
Look back on our winners from the Self Management Awards 2016, held on 4th October at the Scottish Parliament.
