Young adults advisory board
This is your chance to generate ideas that will help individuals with MPS, Fabry or related diseases in your age group.
This group is looking at services and resources that will help young people to live life to their full potential and how the MPS Society can work with you to provide them, 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 was held in September and identified key topics for the group to begin to focus on. These were:
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 then put to a vote on which would be discussed first, employment ranked highest and will be covered in the next two meetings.
It is still early days in the development of this project and how often the meetings will run will be dependent on the group.
