On Wednesday 3rd October at the Scottish Parliament, the 2018 Self Management Award winners were announced.
Last night the Scottish Parliament was bursting with anticipation about who would be our newly crowned winners of the annual Self Management Awards. Jackie Baillie, our sponsoring MSP opened the night speaking passionately about the importance of self management to support individuals living with long term conditions. Jackie had the crowd whooping and cheering and guests immediately knew that the night was a celebration of everyone involved.
Our amazing judges had the hard task to decide on the winners. It should however be noted that after the ‘Self Management Project of the Year’ had been shortlisted and then it was taken to an online vote which seen over 1,900 recorded votes.
