Support Peace of Mind
With the help of Aviva, you can now offer Peace of Mind to people in your community through our new Crowdfunding Campaign!
Co-founders & Directors, Colin Millar & Jim Withers explain:
Before Coronavirus, many of us could barely imagine what it’s like to be stuck at home from the time you get up till you go to bed with no social contact. Â Lockdown changed all that. Â We’re now exiting lockdown and many of us are fortunate enough to be returning to a “normal life”, taking part in community activities and groups, meeting friends and family and enjoying outdoor spaces.
For disabled people, lockdown existed before Coronavirus and will continue to exist long after the rest of us have returned to “normal life”
Lockdown is the “normal life” for too many disabled people in Scotland. Â Often their own support is a fleeting visit to help them out of bed, get washed and dressed, prepare meals and then return to bed in the evening.
Peace of Mind is working hard to change that reality but we can only do it with your help
We’re already working with a number of groups with various disabilities including adults with ADHD and elderly people who have mobility issues to connect with others in their community, offer companionship, friendship and genuine social inclusion.
But we can’t do it alone. Â We need your support to grow our network of groups. Every donation made to the Crowdfunder Campaign moves us one step closer to overcoming social exclusion and isolation for people across Scotland.
OTHER WAYS FOR BUSINESSES TO SUPPORT:
If you’re a business, you could sponsor a group in your local area. Â You could offer your staff “volunteering” days to allow them to engage with people socially isolated and excluded in your community to attend group activities or events or even just visit someone who’s alone for a short period.
You could donate any goods or resources and make a real difference to the people in your community.
OTHER WAYS FOR COMMUNITY GROUPS TO SUPPORT:
If you’re already running or taking part in a community group or activity, why not see how you can assist people in your community to join in with you.
