    Cereba - a charity dedicated to helping families and children with brain conditions to discover a better life -  is holding a free virtual workshop via Zoom for parent carers to learn about its Accessing Public Services in Scotland Toolkit. 

    The aim of the workshop is to support families who are encountering difficulties in relation to the provision of health, social care and education support services. The workshop isn't about giving legal advice or solving individual issues, but about general strategies that parents can use to get the services that they need for their child or family. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

    • Identify commonly occurring problems facing families accessing services and recognise different types of dispute.
    • Come up with problem-solving approaches to these problems.
    • Use of number template letters when corresponding with public bodies.

    This workshop includes working on case studies relating to direct payments, respite care, Disabled Home Adaptions, residential payments and school transport.

    If you are interested in attending this event, then please e-mail [email protected] to book a place.
