Living it Up (https://portal.livingitup.org.uk/) is an online self-management hub which aims to empower people to improve their health and well-being. Although aimed at the over 50’s, Living it Up is useful for those with long term health conditions, care givers and anyone who wants to improve their health, well-being and quality of life. By using familiar technology like computers, tablets and smart phones, users of Living it Up are able to access innovative and trusted health, care and well-being services, local information, volunteering opportunities and products which will enable everyone to feel better connected in their communities and more in control of their own health.

The service is currently active in five areas across Scotland: Forth Valley, Highland and Argyll & Bute, Lothian, Moray, and the Western Isles, and aspires to extend its reach to the whole of Scotland and beyond.






information about free training and group work for carers

Evaluation of previous events tells us that carers feel more confident and better able to cope following participation on events. We have places available on all events and are very keen to let carers know about these free events.

Parent and Carer Support and Information Session on Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health issues.

This session has been planned with the support of The Junction and CAHMS and will take place on Thursday 21st May, 6.30-8.30pm at The 86 Space, The Junction, 86 Junction Street, Leith.

The evening will provide an opportunity for parents who wish more information or are concerned about their teenager’s emotional wellbeing or mental health to meet other parents and supportive professionals in a safe relaxed environment.

At this initial session parents’ views will also be sought to plan future support and information sessions. Parents and carers of 11-18 year olds from across the city are welcome to attend.
