By Your Side Scotland team

Our By Your Side Scotland team are delighted to be out again supporting families in University Hospital Wishaw.

We know how physically and emotionally exhausting it can be when your child is in hospital. And how important it is to be listened to and get the right help when you most need it.   

Families attending the hospital can access our resources from our information stand in the main foyer – all without an appointment. Lynn, our Scotland By Your Side Parent Adviser, will be at the Wishaw hospital on Tuesday 19th December from 10am to 4pm to guide anyone looking for support. We can help on a wide range of topics, including condition specific services, getting the right support in school, benefits, funding and grants, transition to adulthood planning and put you in touch with local parent support groups.

We also continue to provide support to families from our information stand at the Royal Hospital for Children (Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus), Glasgow. We’ll be there with our partners, the Family Fund and the Office for Rare Conditions Glasgow, on Wednesday 17th January from 10am to 4pm.

Remember – you don’t need a diagnosis to access our help, and we support families from birth to 25 years old.
