16 August 2010 Personal assistants and independent living
Some of you may be thinking of moving out, going to university and leaving home. This can be a fresh new beginning, but also a challenging prospect. How will I manage? Who can I get to support me? What resources are available?
Care agencies can provide a variety of support options.
They recruit, train, and manage Personal Assistants across England and Wales to support those who need it on a full time or part time basis.
They want to to make sure that younger people have the same opportunities that every other young person should expect and are working with the National Union of Students to make them aware of the support they can give to students.
