Case Study: How an Independent Support Organisation Assisted Paul to Recruit 4 PAs
Paul requires support from his Personal Assistants (PAs) to help maintain a family life as well as assisting him to contribute to, and access, society. With the assistance of an independent support organisation, Paul developed the job description which includes both personal and domestic duties within the household as well as providing support so he can access the community, to work etc. Paul was supported through the recruitment process and was signposted to organisations for specialist information, such as employment information and payroll organisations. He also inquired about training for his employees and the support organisation provided Paul with relevant training sources that would deliver the specific training he felt was important for his employees. With the support and advice he received, Paul has now been employing staff for many years; consequently Paul enjoys his citizenship rights and is respected as an equal player in society:
“Having control over when and how my support is delivered enabled me to fit more with my family rather than them fit around me.”
