Self management puts people living with long-term conditions in 'the driving seat'. People are supported and encouraged to access information and to develop skills that will enable them to live their lives on their terms.

Gaun Yersel! leaflet

Scotland has been a leader in developing self management approaches, as set out in the self management strategy Gaun Yersel! The key emphasis within this strategy is: "I am the leading partner in the management of my health."

The £2m per year Self Management Fund, administered on behalf of the Scottish Government by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE), provides a unique opportunity for third sector organisations and partnerships to develop and strengthen new project ideas that support self management as well as building upon existing approaches.

Self Management Network Scotland

The Self Management Network Scotland was launched in November 2014. It has just under 300 members and continues to grow. The network provides a focal point for continuing to build on self management in Scotland, sharing good practice and driving innovation and improvement.
