PA Employer & PA Handbook: making use of the new resource in the Highlands

Free information sessions for people in the Highland area

SDS Scotland have worked in partnership with our member organisations and PA Employers and Personal Assistants from across Scotland, to develop this online resource. If you are thinking about employing a PA, or working in social care as a PA, this is the resource for you. If you’re a Social Worker discussing Option 1 of SDS with people, this is the resource to look at.

Find the online resource here: 

There’s a wealth of information to support both employers and PAs covering topics such as:

  • What is Self-Directed Support?
  • Advertising and recruiting for Personal Assistants
  • Training and support for PAs and PA Employers
  • The flexible use of an SDS budget
  • The employment of family members
  • Self-employed PAs
  • Accessing SDS when you already have a Child’s Plan
  • Where to go for additional information and support

If you’d like to learn more about the Personal Assistant and PA Employer Handbooks, come along to one of our free online information sessions.
