The Peace of Mind program aims are to work with individuals, families, community groups and local businesses to ensure that people with disabilities and those who are socially excluded and experiencing loneliness can get more involved in their local community.
Peace of Mind helps people to create and develop their own local groups, which they can use to find activities of interest that are available in their area. Peace of Mind closely supports the groups, and helps with finding support staff, who help facilitate and plan group activities.

The funds will allow them to kick start groups with set up costs, new employment of support staff where needed and running costs for first 9 months after which a group would be in a stable position to develop in ways that suits the people. The ethos of Peace of Mind is it is not in competition to others but the complete opposite as the basis of the program is integration and partnership.
The Peace of Mind team has over 20 years experience in the third sector, working with and supporting disadvantaged people, and have skills and knowledge in a broad range of services and partnerships which are successfully adapted for the program.
Peace of Mind vision is to see local PoM groups across the UK developed and owned by local people, including those who are socially-distanced and experience loneliness, so they can be involved locally and making decisions that are beneficial to them.
Peace of Mind works! Now more than ever is the time to create more community groups.
