There is Free Support Available for PAs
There are friendly and free services available to talk through the decision to become a Personal Assistant (PA) or if you are feeling isolated as a PA. Organisations that provide a range of information, advice and support to PAs across Scotland are available. Some of these are specifically focussed on PAs’ needs whilst others are more generic for any worker.
