Peer Support for Parents and Carers
The Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living (LCiL) hosts a peer support group for parents and carers of disabled children and children with additional support needs. They take place once a month, alternating Monday and Thursdays, 10.30am -1.30pm. Lunch from 12:30pm.
Next Meeting: Thursday 18th June – Moving Out of Home
A development worker from Housing Options Scotland will speak about the pathway for a young disabled person moving out of home:
- When to start the process;
- the practicalities of finding a home for a disabled person in all tenures from buying to private renting and social housing;
- Information on all the help that is given in terms of grants and adaptations.
A Housing Options Scotland peer supporter from Edinburgh will also speak about her experience as a mother going through the maze of social work to get the right support package for her son so he could move out of the family home into his own flat.
Where: Norton Park Conference Centre in the Napier Room, 57 Albion Road Edinburgh EH7 5QY
Lunch and refreshments are provided.
