Our Support Groups and Telehealth

We currently run groups in:

  • Forth Valley
  • East Dunbartonshire
  • Aberdeenshire

If you do not live in any of the areas above don’t worry, we can link you into family support groups that are local to you.

There are many family support groups across Scotland and they are a way of meeting other people who share the same experiences and thoughts. These groups are places for people to speak, learn from each other, to get things off their chest, and offer support and advice to each other. There are talks, activities, guest speakers, catch-ups, events, everything. And there’s always time for a cuppa and a blether.

Some groups will use programmes such as SMART and CRAFT, some groups are fellowship, and then some groups are peer-support led.

If you are worried about going to a group or don’t feel it is for you, that’s okay. Groups are not for everyone and there are other ways to support you. But groups are a place sharing, laughter, and friendship. They are there to support you and make you feel comfortable. They’re a little world that you can be yourself in. If you’re not sure about going along to a group, why not give the group a call first? Many groups offer one-to-one support first and this may make you feel more comfortable to go along.

Telehealth

Telehealth is our free 1:1 support service where support is given over the phone, through email, FaceTime or NHS Attend Anywhere. Telehealth sessions are typically an hour a week, and we offer up to 6 sessions.

Telehealth can support you if you live in rural or remote locations, can’t travel far, cannot get childcare, or do not live near a support group or service.

The quickest way to get in touch with us about Telehealth is through our helpline.
