SPAEN looks to give freedom and choice back to people who are receiving community care budgets and providing support to those that manage there care with personal assistants. I believe that the freedom people have when they are in control of their own care should be available to everyone.
SPAEN provides a range of supports, from information on self-directed support to practical support on recruiting and employing your own staff including providing payroll and finance management services, all designed to let you lead the life you want to live without the worry of becoming an 'employer'.

SPAEN is a user-led support organisation and operates across the whole of Scotland.
