Pamis Fife

Five years ago Pamis Fife recognised families who care for someone with PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities) and individuals with PMLD are at serious risk from social isolation and further mental health problems. Working with families, PAMIS established a Friendship Club for families to attend. The Club is run once a month and more frequently during the summer holidays. The Friendship Club provides an opportunity for carers to meet new people while offering sensory story telling and art work for people with PMLD to enjoy. Since 2014 the club has gone from strength to strength and has helped over different 50 families and individuals with PMLD. Many families are regulars to the Club and many friendships have been developed, in 2018 the attendance for the combined Friendship Clubs reached over 300 people. We were pleased to help them celebrate their 5th Birthday.
