Thank you

We are very grateful for the monies we received from the Big Lottery Fund.

Thanks to National Lottery players raising funding for good causes, the National Lottery is able to give out more than £500 million to communities across the UK each year.

For over 15 years, Self management UK has been supporting people living with long-term health conditions (LTCs), or those caring for them, to take control of their conditions and overcome the challenges which prevent them from living their life to full potential. We achieve this through the delivery of peer-led workshops, interventions and events which enable people to share experiences, learn coping and managing skills and techniques to help raise their aspirations for a better quality of life. Our organisation would not be able to achieve its mission without the phenomenal contribution of our volunteers; in 2017, our current team of 75 volunteer tutors and 5 paid staff (most of whom originated as course participants) delivered over 900 individual self-management sessions totalling more than 2700 hours of support, to over 2500 people living with one or more long-term health conditions.

The funds we have received are enabling us to make available a more updated suite of technology to enable our diverse staff and volunteer team to feel more virtually connected.

Thank you.
