We will develop and support a Focus ARBD group in Edinburgh for men and women who are living with ARBD. We will draw on the experience of the founding Focus ARBD group which has been running very successfully in Glasgow for 2 years. Focus ARBD’s two support workers will work with the group to develop and undertake the activities identified. Key professionals in the statutory and independent sectors in Edinburgh have underlined the need for a Focus ARBD group in Edinburgh and support this application. An Edinburgh group may lead to wider development in the Lothians.
