Independent Living Groups are groups of disabled people and their carers’ that meet locally to discuss issues with each other in a supportive environment.
“It is a place where I can get information but most importantly a place where you know that you are not alone in the difficult world of “disability”- ILG member
The groups give you the opportunity to share and swap information and talk with peers about issues you may have with the Personal Budgets/Direct Payment process. There are also interesting talks/presentations on topical subjects at most meetings.
The groups also provide opportunities to:
- Access information and advice
- Find out about self-directed support
- Share lived experiences
- Learn from and support each other
- Hear interesting talks and discussions
- Access free workshops on different aspects of Personal Budgets
- And much more…!
The groups have the chance to contribute their ideas for shaping services for disabled people in Norfolk.
They meet in:
- North Walsham (N. Norfolk ILG & Access Group)
All venues are wheelchair accessible and drinks are provided. If you cannot make a group meeting you can still get involved!
There is an online skype Independent Living Group and you can also follow the ILGs on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/
