Other Groups & Services
on from the success of our Befriending Project,
funded by a one year grant from Lothian
Health Board in March 2003, we are delighted
that we have been successful in securing
a 3 year funding commitment from the Big
Lottery Fund (formerly
the Community Fund) to enable us to continue
with and expand our Befriending Service
meaning we can offer this service to even
more clients than before.
Befriending service supports people of all
ages who have epilepsy, epilepsy and a learning
disability or additional support needs who
feel isolated and wish to get out more and
use community resources.
Therapy is back at Enlighten
Therapy sessions at Enlighten will recommence
from the end of July and we are pleased
to welcome back Gail Jarvis as our Art Therapist.
Gail will deliver one to one sessions on
Mondays and Fridays in Enlighten offices.
Many thanks to The
Nancie Massey Charitable Trust and
The D'Oyly Carte Charitable
Trust from whom we
received funding for this Project.
Therapy gives you a space to explore your
thoughts and feelings through creative work.
Clinic at Western General Hospital
in conjunction with epilepsy liasion nurses
these clinics are for young people and their
parents/carers. The clinics are for
teenagers moving from The Sick Children's
Hospital to the Western General and cover
issues about moving on in the young person's
group for any adult affected by epilepsy.
This group meets on an monthly basis for
lunch in Enlighten offices and is a good
way to meet others to share experiences,
discuss any issues relating to epilepsy
and enjoy a freindly chat. The group
often invites experts to the meeing to talk
about and discuss a topic of interest.
Clinics (In Partnership with Sleep Scotland)
for parents whose children experience chronic
sleep disturbance. Clinics take place
either at Enlighten or in the family home.
