The ALLIANCE has administered the Self Management Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government since 2009.

Gaun Yersel’ The Self Management Strategy for Long Term Conditions in Scotland was written in partnership with people living with long term conditions and their unpaid carers in 2008, and adopted by the Scottish Government.  One of the key recommendations in the strategy was to establish a fund to support self management approaches across Scotland.

Since 2009 the Self Management Fund has provided grants supporting 244 projects in Scotland across four iterations of the Fund.
