New Lottery Funding

PAMIS has been  awarded £98,702 from the Big Lottery Fund for the Digital Transitions project. This project which will provide person and family centred support to young people aged 15 to 18 and their families who are in the transition process from secondary education to adult service provision.  The project started on the 1st August 2016 and will operate within the local authority areas of Glasgow City, East Renfrewshire and East Dunbartonshire, over the next two years.

passportThe project will provide 1:1 family support on all aspects of transition planning. In conjunction with the above support families will have the opportunity to co-produce a PAMIS Digital Passport.  This is an electronic resource highlighting the social, emotional, psychological and physical care and support needs of the young person. Features of the passport include text, sound, video clips and photographs which can be accessed on the person’s technology device by family carers, paid staff and practitioners providing care and support. This will contribute to the Self Directed Support assessment process and the development of an outcome based support plan.  It can also be used as a training tool for new staff teams to enable them to have a greater understanding of the individual and their support needs.
