Our PA Employer Forum takes place four times a year. We started this forum in the hope to be able to offer those employing personal assistants a chance to come together and discuss specific issues relating to being a PA employer and managing direct payments. Each session is hosted by one of our Development Workers alongside a member of the Independent Living Service to answer any questions and respond to any thoughts you may have.

Just like our peer support groups and workshops, this is a safe and welcoming space tailored for you to confidently share your experiences and learn from the experience of others. Experienced PA employers and those new to direct payments or considering changing their Self-Directed Support option are all welcome as we look to bring together people from all backgrounds and different stages of seeking/receiving support.

An up-to-date list of all of our events can be found in our calendar or ourĀ current events programme.
