2019 Haemophilia Scotland AGM. Augustine United Church, Edinburgh, June 8, 11:00am-3:00pm

This is an interactive event for people affected by a bleeding disorder, young and old.
This event is FREE for members
The non-member fee is £10/person.

Haemophilia Scotland and Licketyspit have teamed up to create this fun day where your child/ren will learn through play and theatre some helpful messages, previously suggested by you, that will help them better understand living with a bleeding disorder.

Licketyspit is an Edinburgh-based theatre company, dedicated to creating meaningful theatre to engage the imaginations of early years children, to empower them and to inspire their play. Participation is for young and old alike!

We have a mobile creche operating, so at the commencement of the AGM at 1:15pm, children will have the opportunity to visit the National Museum before returning at 3:00pm to finish.

Important documents pertaining to the AGM can be found on our AGM page.

Teen Driving Lesson. Knockhill Racing Circuit, 20 April, 12:30pm-5:30pm

This event is for teenagers aged 13-17 affected by a bleeding disorder.
This event is FREE for members of Haemophilia Scotland.
The non-member fee is £75.00.

Living with a bleeding disorder doesn’t mean your ability to travel has to be restricted.

The transitioning from child care to adult care is such a critical time in the life of someone affected by a bleeding disorder.

The transition process is all about self management and care and becoming independent and responsible.

The purpose of this event is to equip teenagers with the confidence to drive which can open up a whole range of possibilities for them and put them on a path to being independent, young adults.

12:30pm: Meet for lunch (provided)
1:20pm: Driving course.
5:30pm: Finish

Due to the nature of the event, there are 16 spaces available on a first come, first served basis.
