Walsall PA Network Steering Group

Would you like to take part in a service user steering group to improve the Walsall PA Network? Ideal for All is looking for members to join a small group who either access the directory as a PA or as an employer, and are willing to share their views and experiences. There will be three steering group meetings held over the next six months. The first meeting will take place on 13th July 2016 in Walsall.

What is a PA?

Some people use their Direct Payment or own resources to employ a Personal Assistant. A Personal Assistant provides their employer with one to one support so that they have more choice, independence and control over their life. Increasingly PAs are working for disabled people, older people and individuals with long term health conditions.
