PAMIS

PAMIS is a Scottish organisation and registered charity working with people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, their family carers and professionals who support them.

PAMIS commitment is to ensure that:

  • people with profound and multiple learning disabilities are valued both as individuals and in the contribution they make to the community
  • they should receive all the support needed to realise their full potential
  • their right to a full life shaped by personal choice, abilities and needs underlies all provision and policy affecting their lives
  • the knowledge and experience of family carers is recognised, and that their views are fully taken into account in service development

To achieve this, PAMIS offers families:

  • practical help, advice, training and information
  • individual support, and contact with other families
  • assistance with achieving better access to community resources, whether mainstream or specialist
  • the opportunity to influence policy and services significantly, both at local and national levels

PAMIS is the sister unit to the White Top Research Unit at the University of Dundee.

PAMIS is a member of the Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability (SCLD).
