I agree with what 'PIXIE' has to say concerning the closure of SPAN. I too am concerned about what is going to happen to all the people who attend the classes. What price health? What is happening to this country? Soon there will be no need for places like SPAN as we will all have ended it.
We are at the moment all very happy with the service provided at SPAN. It is a place where we all feel comfortable, safe and relaxed now all this has changed. Since the meeting, held at SPAN, life has been chaos for most of us. Where there was once peace and calm there is now uncertainty and unrest none of feel safe anymore.
Tim is trying to find us somewhere else to set up the IT groups and therefore continue the support but then how long will it be before we are to be told 'we can no longer finance this scheme'. How long will this treatment of us last, we didnt ask to have this happen to us so why make it worse by withdrawing facilities?
We need the support and company of others who are in the same position as ourselves, most of us cannot cope in the 'normal world' we lack the confidence. We need places like SPAN and by closing them down it is not saving money as we then need further support from doctors, hospitals, psychiatrists and the like.
Thank goodness for Tim he is brilliant, at least he is supporting us and treating us how we want to be treated.
