Family Support Service

What is the Family Support Service?

Our Family Support Service delivers a responsive and inclusive approach.  We integrate a network of community-based resources and services that strengthen parenting practices and ultimately the health and wellbeing of the whole family.  At PAMIS we respect and value true partnership, working together co-productively is core to the work we undertake.  The value placed on the expertise of the parents is celebrated and supported.

The service delivered though the PAMIS Family Support Service, ranges from one to one meetings, attending school and day service reviews and assessments, campaigning for improved intellectual and physical access, ensuring that people with PMLD and their families are represented in strategic policy, planning and consultation at national and local level. Information provision and research identified as important by the families is undertaken by PAMIS, in partnership with the families. Innovative and creative models of delivering training to staff and families caring for people with PMLD is also an integral part of the service.

As an organisation PAMIS works to improve the lives of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and those who care for them by working together with family carers to contribute towards creating a more inclusive society.
