ArabTRUST Honourary Member Amanda Kopel
03 Oct

ArabTUST are delighted to announce that Amanda Kopel has been offered and accepted an Honourary Membership within the society in recognition of the tireless campaigning she has done over the last five years to see the delivery of “Frank’s Law”.

The Scottish Government agreed to the implementation of “Frank’s Law” which will see free personal care extended to under 65’s with degenerative conditions like Dementia, Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. This change will benefit over 9,000 people in Scotland who up to the implementation date have had to fund the cost of care themselves.

When Amanda heard the news from the Scot Gov she said “I was blown away, absolutely over the moon, there are no words in the dictionary that explain how I felt”

She quickly regained her composure to say that she would now be campaigning to bring forward the implementation date of April 2019.

We make this award as a small thank you from all the members at ArabTRUST

Amanda said she was delighted and honoured to accept but the truth is its us that are honoured

Thank you Amanda
