Our projects

We have three projects at Equal Say, in Glasgow our Parents Project works with parents who have a learning disability and in North Lanarkshire we work with adults aged 18 to under 65 with mental ill health or learning disability. In North Lanarkshire we prioritise people subject to legislation such as the Adults with Incapacity Act, the Adult Support and Protection Act and the Mental Health Act.  Also in North Lanarkshire, we have a project team to help adults increase their choice and control over the support they receive through Self-Directed Support.
