Self Management for Life will fund 32 projects for up to 3 years to support the development of self management support across Scotland.

The ALLIANCE has today announced that £1.8 million of Scottish Government funding has been awarded to 32 new projects across Scotland through the latest round of the Self Management Fund, Self Management for Life.

The Self Management Fund for Scotland aims to empower people living with long term conditions, disabled people and unpaid carers to take control their health, care and wellbeing.

One of the funded organisations, Deepness Ltd, will support people with dementia to develop an online course and toolkit focussed on supporting other people with dementia to develop resilience and retain autonomy. Another organisation awarded funding, In Control Scotland, will create a person centred planning academy of disabled adults and unpaid carers.

Sara Redmond, Chief Officer of Development at the ALLIANCE said:

“We are pleased to announce such a strong and diverse portfolio of projects though this new round of funding. Supported self management is an essential component of care for people to live well and the emphasis on prevention in this round will mean people have access to the benefits of self management at an earlier stage in their journey.”

The newly announced projects will run for between one and three years and target the identified priority areas for self management approaches, with a particular focus on prevention of poor health outcomes and support for people on waiting lists for specialist care.

This investment from the Self Management Fund, administered by the ALLIANCE, is made possible by the continued support and investment from the Scottish Government.
