Support for self management through public libraries in Scotland

Article | 22 September 2021

Since October 2017, the ALLIANCE’s Self Management Team have been working with partners to increase support for self management through public libraries in Scotland

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland in partnership with NHS Scotland and Scottish public library services have been working together on a Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) Public Library Improvement Fund project (this link will take you away from our website). Together they have developed a training resource for public library staff to increase their knowledge about self management of long term conditions and health literacy enabling them to feel confident offering support and information to people about their health and wellbeing.

Marianne Brennan, the ALLIANCE, has written a blog article in which she shares her learning and reflections as the ALLIANCE’s Public Library Improvement Fund Round 1 Project comes to an end.
