Stop Press: 3 years funding for Peace of Mind
Awards for All and Scottish Government are supporting this much needed service. We welcome discussing with like minded organisations contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Respite Now cic in collaboration with SPAEN has been working to develop a new tailored provision namely a small hours hub service called Peace of Mind. The catalyst for this new venture is due to the new self direct support legislation and the historic difficulties where small hour support and continuity of quality staffing has been evident over a number of years. However, the motivation and rationale behind the small hours hub – self support inclusion service is much wider than just the creation on a new partnership approach to a new service provision.
Sharing a wider vision and purpose to increase and extend services in response to the need of tailored services including: management, staff training, health & safety awareness, insurance, financial inclusion and employability as examples to meet disadvantaged people’s needs both in relation to support and delivery of `small hours` self-directed support packages and to assist people who have aspirations to gain access to meaningful employment and training opportunities. This provides a one-stop-shop of critical services, expert advice and support that ensures the individual daily needs and quality of life are met.
