Support for Personal Assistants

When Personal Assistants (PAs) are supported, the people they care for are supported.

But we know that SDS PAs sometimes feel they’re missing out on some of the independent and peer-to-peer support available to their fellow PAs working in other care settings such as residential or agency – support that would enable them to be the best at what they do.

This is where our dedicated PA Advisor, Laura, comes in.

As a single point of contact for SDS PAs across Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City, Laura can:

  • provide confidential support and advice for SDS PAs;
  • signpost PAs to other organisations for specialist support and advice;
  • set up local support networks where PAs can share ideas, explore local resources and make the most of training opportunities;
  • proactively encourage other PAs to consider careers in SDS; and
  • survey PAs to gain an understanding of specific support needs, common goals and challenges.

“I’m delighted to have joined the team at Cornerstone SDS. I’m excited to start working with you, our clients’ PAs, to find out what really matters to you. I know we can work together to develop a positive and supportive workforce.”

Laura, PA Advisor
