Event description

Description

We are delighted to present a series of six roadshows across the Borders on the theme of independent living.

These events are for anyone with a physical disability or long-term condition, their carers and families.

What is independent living?

Essentially, it is living just like everyone else:

  • having opportunities to make decisions that affect your life

  • being able to pursue activities of your own choosing

We will be bringing along groups and organisations to share information with you about benefits, transport, housing, adaptations, aids and equipment, support services and recreational activities.

You will also have a chance to give your views on the new Borders physical disability strategy produced by the Health and Social Care Partnership and partners.

During the first two hours of the roadshow, there will be a number of quick 10-minute presentations from the groups and organisations. There will be lots of breaks and opportunities for questions.

During the last hour, you will be able to look around the stalls in the style of a market place. You can speak to the groups and organisations joining us on the roadshow and find out more about what’s in your area.

Individuals can book for the presentations only, drop in to the market place at the end, or attend the whole thing. It's up to you!

We promise you a very friendly and welcoming environment – and refreshments will be available.
