Peer Support Project

In June 2023 we will be launching our new Peer Support project, funded by the Alliance for Health and Social Care, Scotland. This is an exciting new service designed to support people with lipoedema in Scotland. Once the service starts in June, you will be able to refer yourself, or be referred by a health professional, for one-to-one support. You will be matched to a specially trained Peer Supporter volunteer who also has lived experience of lipoedema. For more information, click here
