We work with other groups, organisations and individuals to promote better outcomes for the people of Scotland who live daily with disability and/or mental health issues. We provide classes and online sessions in conjunction with healthcare practitioners. These are the Friends of Friends and we have listed some of them below.

Voices for Dignity Scotland (VoiDS)

This group is an advocacy and influencing group working to ensure that the full impact of bladder and bowel dysfuntion on the individual and society is understood.  We are interested in any individual who had or has bladder or/and bladder symptoms (with or without leakage) and who would be willing to join arms to ensure that the voices of individuals with bladder and /or bowel dysfunction is heard.  Working with academic institutions, private and third sector organisation, we wil work to support research and evidence to highlight the reality of the impact of bladder and Bowel dysfunction.

The Centre has been a life-changing experience for me, I had been through the whole gambit of NHS Services several times and my life felt like it was spinning out of control.

Only at the CIC did they actually look at the whole picture and put me on the path to living with my disability. I can’t thank the staff enough.

– Giles, Patient at CIC Glasgow
