We aim to promote independence using a person-centred approach. A person-centred approach considers people’s strengths aspirations and goals. Personal Assistance varies from someone needing support to transition from residential college or from living with family into the independent living.
- A personal assistant supports you with a wide range of tasks, helping to increase your independence and make a real difference to your quality of life.
- A personal assistant is usually employed by people who are directing their own care through a direct payment or personal budgets from the council, or are funding their own support.
- This is about you having control over your own life, by employing your own staff and organising your own services.
