Peace of Mind Programme

The Peace of Mind Programme is a joint initiative between SPAEN and Respite Now C.I.C along with others.  The programme is a unique and innovative way of “pooling” some of your SDS package.

“Pooling” allows you to spend time with other people who want to do similar activities or have shared interests; aspirations or ideas.  This helps you spread the cost of an activity or social event and develops natural networks.

You can register your interest in the Peace of Mind programme by visiting our website.  To find our more, you can also download our Peace of Mind brochure.

SDS Outreach Project

With funding support from the Robertson Trust, SPAEN are running an “SDS Outreach Project”.

The project aims to increase awareness of the choices available to persons with support needs and increase the number of people using options 1, 2 and 4, particularly in areas of Scotland where the uptake of these options is below the national average.

If you would like to speak to us about the project, please e-mail our Support Services Manager.
