SBH Scotland have worked to continue a vital support service albeit in slightly different formats than normal.

Until further notice the Dan Young Building, our Head Office in Cumbernauld, is closed to members and following government guidelines we have made the decision to stop home visits temporarily.

Coronavirus Hub and Information: We have a dedicated page for information relating to the Coronavirus. If members have any concerns of how they could be affected they can also click on our link and have a video chat with one of our clinical team.

YouTube: Our YouTube channel is home to many useful resources during times such as these including Have A Go films to encourage children's play and development and our support worker Kerry has also been filming 'dancercise' videos for thos with limited mobility. Visit our channel now to subscribe.
