The Self Management Team are gearing up for the 2017 Self Management Week and we want to raise the awareness and shout about the huge benefits self management can bring to people’s lives.

Self management is about people living with long term conditions being in ‘the driving seat’. It supports people to live their lives better, on their terms. Self management is not a replacement for services, it’s about self-determination in partnership with supporters.

To make a truly valuable impact and get people talking about Self Management we want you to get involved and we want to know about it. Keep reading for ideas.

If you think of an idea that hasn’t been mentioned, get in touch with the team:
