Gathering Voices Video - Positives of being a P.A by Matt

Introduction

Gathering Voices was funded by a grant from the Office of Disability Issues through the Strengthening Disabled People's User Led Organisations funding

Finding the right personal assistant (PA) makes all the difference to the quality of support a person gets to live the life they choose. Being a PA is all about building a relationship with the person you’re supporting and always listening actively, being calm, relaxed even when things seem to be falling apart. Having some interests in common can really help.

Here’s what one PA has to say about the job and about working with a young man, including supporting him to work in a local café.
