Community Review

East Lothian  Council is carrying out a review of all community services that provide a day service or day support to adults with a disability or long term condition.

To broaden the picture of community transformation, ELCCF also carried out an independent survey about what matters to people who attend local peer groups in East Lothian.

Peer groups are usually condition specific that provide peer support, advocacy,  social opportunities and activities to many people who do not receive a formal service or care package.
