Support in Mind Scotland is proud to announce a new two-year charity partnership with Viewpoint Housing Association.

Viewpoint is the oldest housing association in Scotland. The association, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, provides sheltered housing across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife, and also runs three care homes. 

Viewpoint's aim is to improve the quality of life and well-being of its tenants and residents by encouraging independence, enabling choice and offering peace of mind in a safe and supported environment.

Staff recently selected SiMS as their new chosen Charity and the partnership started today (1 November).

Dorry McLaughlin, CEO at Viewpoint, said: "We are delighted to be working with Support in Mind Scotland from 1 November 2017.

"This partnership will help us learn more about this important area and will enhance the work we have done so far in relation to mental health awareness. This can only have a positive effect on our relations with our employees, customers and stakeholders.
