Steven Gladstone explains the benefits of mentoring

At the Funcation Scotland event last week we found some time to ask one of our fantastic mentors, Steven Gladstone, to record this short video.

In the video he explains why he decided to get involved in the project and some of the benefits families across Scotland are getting from it.

Ultimately, the project gives families, mainly with younger children, a chance to really get to know someone with relevant experience of living with a bleeding disorder.  Thanks to home delivery and improved treatment most people spend less time in their Haemophilia Centre.  While this is obviously a good thing it does mean there is less chance to strike up a conversation with another family with a bleeding disorder.  A big part of the project is bridging that gap.
