Our work

Thistle is a Scottish charity supporting people with long-term health conditions and disabilities to live life on their terms.

We support people living with disabilities, long-term conditions or facing challenging life situations to live well, whatever that means to them. 

We support people to take control of their life, focusing on the person, not their situation. We listen to what a person tells us they need and we tailor our support around that, working beside people until they are able to manage life without us.


Our support takes many different forms



Sharing our learning

We deliver training on our unique, person-centred way of working to NHS, social care, third sector and private sector organisations. You can find out more about our training and consultancy work at the Thistle Learning pages.
