Young adults discussion group
This is your chance to generate ideas that will help individuals with MPS, Fabry or related diseases in your age group.
This group is a chance to look at ways that will help young people to live life to their full potential and how the MPS Society can work with you to provide it, in a way that suits you. This is more than addressing health issues, it’s all support you may need from adult services to employment issues to, well, you tell us!
The first meeting which was online via Zoom in September, identified key topics for the group to begin to focus on. Below are the topics that the group have decided upon:
Employment and Employability
Life skills and Independent living
Benefits and financial advice
Education, Exams and University
Practicalities of living with a disability
The six topics were put to a vote on which area to cover first. Employment ranked highest and will be covered in the next two meetings. It is still early days in the development of the Young Persons Advisory Group and how often the meetings will run will be dependent on the group. The next online meeting is scheduled for the start of 2020. This will be the second meeting for employment and you can read the notes from the first meeting in the dropdown menu below.
