Get involved Share your story Share your story People's stories There are several ways to measure the impact of self-management and self-care. A valuable way is to hear and understand the impact self-management education has on people who have attended our courses. The impact on their quality of life is inspirational. Here are some of previous course participant stories. We have anonymised their stories. I know without the group I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today. Once I had the strength to get back to work I still struggled getting out of the car, walking, going anywhere else but knowing I had people who understood I kept going. Your stories will help to inspire others. What it meant to you I look back and remember my first day walking in and breaking down in tears; a) because I’d walked from the car, just a few steps; b) because I was in a room full of strangers and c) because why was I, a fit and healthy Mum in my 40’s reduced to having to attend something like this. If you want to find out more about the people we have supported, our volunteers or our work generally, please get in touch. Self Management UK played a huge part in getting me out of the house and for me being able to work again and function with everyday challenges. We are passionate about supporting people from all over England, those where services are commissioned and those where access to services is more limited. Our funding opportunities outline some of the projects we would love to work on.
