Professor Paul Martin, CBE, Depute Principal of UWS, said: “This partnership formalises the strong links we enjoy with this important organisation, which plays such a key role in the health and social care in Scotland.”
The Alliance’s vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages who are disabled or living with long term conditions, and unpaid carers, have a strong voice and enjoy their right to live well, as equal and active citizens, free from discrimination, with support and services that put them at the centre.
The ALLIANCE has over 2,100 members including large, national support providers as well as small, local volunteer-led groups and people who are disabled, living with long term conditions or providing unpaid care.
Ian Welsh, OBE, Chief Executive of the ALLIANCE, said: “We are pleased to be establishing this strategic partnership between the ALLIANCE and UWS. The ALLIANCE and UWS have worked together on a range of projects and we are delighted to be deepening and strengthening this partnership.”
