  • Offer you access to a range of training relevant to being a Personal Assistant;

For Local Independent Support Providers:

The Peace of Mind programme is an open collaboration between independent support and information providers.  If you currently offer supports or services to SDS users and feel that the Peace of Mind programme could enhance or compliment your services, we’d love to work with you.  You can contact our Project Co-Ordinator by e-mail or via telephone (0845 601 1156 and select option 3).

Peace of Mind can help you to:
