Edinburgh Choices - Focus ARBD

Name Focus ARBD
Description

We offer collective advocacy to people who have alcohol-related brain damage. We work to raise awareness and understanding of ARBD, tackle the stigma and promote ways of living positively with ARBD. This includes helping to improve services for people with ARBD and influencing public policy.

We now have 2 groups, one in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow, which each meet regularly to provide peer support and to plan activities. We also go and meet with people living with ARBD in different areas. This helps us find out about the kinds of services people are getting and what helps them most. In all the visits we’ve made, we’ve found that there’s a huge value in sharing experiences and in the bond that understanding each other creates.

Support for People aged 16 - 64. People 65 or over. People with alcohol related brain damage.
