Thank you to Nancy for inviting me as one of the guest speakers at the launch below .The LTCA have been great supporters of my life story campaign ,putting on flyers and in newsletters since day one, I have got to know a few people there quite well including Irene, Ian and Susan and value the work they do
I am very proud to be invited to speak at this launch, please see some details below and a link to their web-site for more info
We are going to use the event to launch the Involvement Network (flyer attached) which will be a loose group of volunteers, drawn from our membership and by word of mouth. Anyone over 18 with a long term condition or disability will be able to join the Involvement Network and people will be supported to take up various opportunities to contribute to the policy work of LTCAS and to work for partner organisations such as the Scottish Government, NHS and universities where the involvement of people with long term conditions is key.
Following an introduction from the Chair, we would like to kick off the event with a couple of good practice examples of different models of involvement which will inspire individuals to join the network and to have confidence in the power of their experience to influence decision makers.
