We’ve been working away in the background on fundraising applications to organise an events programme for our membership in 2023. The below is where we are at just now. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and check our website regularly for updates.
This project had been put on hold due to the pandemic, but we are happy to announce that we have re-launched our Pairing Project.
The Haemophilia Scotland Pairing Project is a buddy programme for people affected by a bleeding disorder to connect you with support and information through mentoring-style pairing relationships. The purpose of the project is to help improve your ability to self-manage your condition and open you up to improved access to emotional support and information.
We’re hosting a 30min info session on Zoom on Monday 20th March, 7:00pm-7:30pm. It’ll be a chance to meet other participants in the project and to answer any of your questions. Register for the Zoom info session
There is limited space for the project so register now to avoid missing out!
Comic Book Project
We’re partnering with Magic Torch on a new project for children aged 8-15 affected by a bleeding disorder. They’ll have the chance to share their stories and experiences of living with a bleeding disorder and have them turned into a comic book! This event has been made possible by funding by Essentia, administered by Foundation Scotland. Find out more and register here.
We’re thrilled to provide an opportunity for our bleeding disorders community to come together, reconnect with old friends and to make new ones at our upcoming Family Day at Edinburgh Zoo on Saturday 22nd April, 10:30am-3:30pm.
Bring the whole family along and enjoy a day out! There’ll be opportunities for us to receive a tour, view the animal feedings and listen to a couple of talks. Find out more and register here.
We are working on fundraising applications to host a women’s conference later in the year. If you would like to be involved with organising the conference and/or have ideas for content, agenda, location etc., then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project for people aged 50+ affected by a bleeding disorder
Prior to the pandemic, we were successful in obtaining funding for a project for people aged 50+ affected by a bleeding disorder. We’re looking at hosting something in the autumn/early winter and would love your input into this event. If you’d like to be involved with organising the event or have any ideas for content you’d like to hear on (e.g. pain management, physio etc.) or activities you’d like to do, then please email email@example.com.
