The Self Management Awards 2017, hosted by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland will take place during Self Management Week 2017 and will celebrate examples of good practice and promote a range of innovative self management work from all over Scotland.
Friend of Ceartas, Tam Willson, has been shortlisted for the Champion of the Year category for his work with the Knowing Me group and for displaying real self-management skills when telling his story.
Knowing Me is a service user led project that encourages those participating to capture and record their personal stories and experience of living with various health conditions. Tam’s contribution was paramount to the success of the group and having completed his story has since went on to share it at the Ceartas AGM.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 4th October 2017 at the awards ceremony at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh.
Good luck, Tam!
