Personal assistants in care - training opportunity

This Saturday a special course has been laid on for anybody in Hampshire interested in working as a personal assistant (PA) in a care setting.

The Pathways to Employment course is aimed at giving people some of the necessary skills and possibly even matching them with families who are looking for personal assistants in care.

The course covers elements such as accessing local services, social care and health care systems, safeguarding and person-centred thinking.

A second course will run in September, with grant funding available for independent organisations to apply for to run courses in the future.

Anybody interested in finding out more or applying to join the course, click here.

The course has been arranged through the Hampshire Children and Maternity Commissioning Team, working with Hampshire County Council and the Hampshire Continuing Healthcare (CHC) service.

It is delivered by Caroline Tomlinson, who has set up the My Life community resource in Wigan.
