Join our online self-advocacy workshop

March 01, 2022

You are invited to join us for a Self-Advocacy workshop online via Zoom live on Friday 18th March 2022 12:30 pm-2:30 pm hosted by our team of Advocacy officers. The workshops will centred around 'Accessing social care in England'. We welcome people with M.E. or those affected by M.E., whether in a carer or even parent or guardian capacity. As well as the presentation, our team will run a question-and-answer session to ensure you come away with the knowledge to have these conversations with a social care professional. We welcome you to this friendly inclusive and online forum.

Please note, although our team will offer a question-and-answer session we cannot respond to specific personal situations.

Expected learning outcomes:

1) To understand how to get information about social care in your Local Authority
2) To understand the process of getting a needs assessment
3) To understand what happens during a needs assessment
4) To understand what happens after a needs assessment
