People and organisations from across Scotland have come together to ensure disabled people, people living with long term conditions and unpaid carers are at the centre of their support.
The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) has reached 2,000 members working together to strengthen the voice of people who use health and social care support and services and promote new models of care.
The milestone was reached when Fauldhouse Community Development Trust joined as member number 2,000. Their aim is tackle the economic, social, environmental and cultural needs of their local community in West Lothian.
Fauldhouse Community Development Trust said
Fauldhouse Community Development Trust is delighted to be the ALLIANCE’s 2,000 member. Joining the ALLIANCE has been a very positive experience for FCDT so far. It has given us the opportunity to share knowledge and best practice, to learn more about other organisations working within the health and social care sector, and much more. We are looking forward to opportunities membership will bring, to promote our own organisation and to highlight the work that we do within our communities.
We would like to take this opportunity to encourage those working within the health and social care sectors to get involved, to join the ALLIANCE and help to influence and shape (among other things) the long term future of health and social care services across Scotland.
Ian Welsh said
“The strength of the ALLIANCE is its membership of 2,000 organisations and individuals, working together to ensure the voice of people who are disabled, living with long term conditions or delivering unpaid care is our driving force. We are a dynamic, cross-sector community working to improve the lives of people who use health and social care services in Scotland.”
