A series of talks is to be launched at the Moray Resource Centre later this month aimed at people who have recently been diagnosed with mental, physical or emotional conditions.
Research undertaken by the centre, located on Elgin’s Maisondieu Road, suggests that people who find themselves in such changed personal circumstances often have questions they would like answered.
These can range from such matters as their eligibility for welfare benefits, help that is available to them to be able to live independently and the support that can be provided for their families.
The talks, which are free of charge, will take place on Friday afternoon on a fortnightly basis and people can register an interest in attending by calling the centre on 01343 551339.
The first talk will take the form of an introductory session and will take place on January 20 at 2pm.
Subsequent talks will be given by representatives from the Health Point, the Independent Living Centre, Quarriers carer support, the Telecare service and Money Advice.
