Making the voice of people with a disability heard

We are involved in various community planning structures which offer a real opportunity to make the voice of people with a disability heard in the planning and development of services within North Lanarkshire.

We are the umbrella organisations for 3 projects – Improving Lives Initiative & Improving the Cancer Journey Lanarkshire, The Little Care Hub (TLC), and Practical Assistance to Promote Health and Wellbeing (PATH).

Improving Lives Initiative & Improving the Cancer Journey Lanarkshire

Working together in North Lanarkshire

Across Scotland the Improving Cancer Journey programme is being rolled out to offer support to those affected by cancer and their carers. Within North Lanarkshire, Improving the Cancer Journey Lanarkshire (ICJ) has joined with another Initiative called Improving Lives (ILI).

This project is based within North Lanarkshire Disability Forum, to help develop and implement this joint programme we have established a team of 10 Community Connectors to support people who are living with a long-term conditions/disabilities and those affected by cancer including their carers, who may benefit from informal community-based support and help accessing formal statutory support should they need it.

Practical Assistance to Promote Health and Wellbeing (PATH)

Through the Practical Assistance to Promote Health and Wellbeing project we are able to offer people:

  • One to one support to fill out benefit related forms and discuss other matters individuals may want to discuss, we also offer home visits.
  • Help to write complaint letters, get in touch with local Councillors or refer for aids and adaptations.

The project is to help people look after themselves the best they can so we can:

  • Support and encourage people to go to health appointments, social work/housing and benefit assessments.
  • General helpline available to individuals and their carers Monday to Friday 9am – 4pm.

We work closely with different organisations to keep us informed such as:

  • Carers, older people, mental health, addictions, adult support and protection etc

The only prerequisite we have is that the person being supported lives in North Lanarkshire and has a disability. All services are free. We do not offer transport or advocacy but we can refer on to other support services for both. If you would like to get in touch you can call 01698 275 710 or email info@nldforum.org.uk
