The UK may be leaving the European Union at the end of October.

 What that may mean for the way we live is still very unclear with information changing on an almost daily basis.

At the Care and Wellbeing Coop we know that people may have concerns about their health and wellbeing needs and services after Brexit.

Will leaving the European Union affect the supply of your medication? Will vital medical supplies that you buy yourself become more expensive? How will it affect your care worker who is from the European Union? 

None us know how it will affect us, but we are here to help and do what we can to support you. 

As part of this we have added a Brexit section to the resources part of our website which has links to various relevant public body statements on the current situation, including the potential impact on health and social care in rural areas.

Our members will also be attending a briefing session for third sector workers in Perthshire on November 9. 

Our commitment to offering a community-led approach to the provision of rural care and wellbeing and work towards helping our clients find the best solutions to their care and wellbeing needs remains unchanged.

The Co-op also plays an important role as an advocate for reform in adult social care in Scotland, and in raising awareness of the work that its members do and how they are finding innovative solutions to the provision of care and wellbeing services, which in the current climate is more vital than ever.

If you have any concerns that you would like to talk to someone about please feel free to contact us on telephone 07548 257436 or email at hello@thecareandwellbeing.coop.
