When you get a diagnosis of a long-term health condition (LTHC), you suddenly feel worthless, and no use to society, we feel that is rubbish idea. We want to show society that having a LTHC can mean you can contribute more to society, after all, as many people like to point out, we have much more spare time than the re
At Sisu we believe we should become self-managers of our condition, that doesn't mean we still don't have them, but it means we learn to live with the condition, as opposed to letting our conditions completely rule our lives.
One of our main ways of achieving this is enablement of our members to undertake projects, either one of their own or one that is already established., these could be anything from setting up a website to hosting a food fair for example.
If you don't want to be active in projects, that's fine, you can just come to our social events, these can be either face-to-face or by Zoom and have a laugh with people who, although may have different conditions, are just like you in facing day to day struggles.
When we say "We want to be like the rest of society", we realise that to be 'equal' in our cause, we have to accept everybody else is equal too, and to that extent, we welcome anybody into our group that feels they can gain something from it.
