We offer an Enabling Service to offer service users the support and assistance they need to participate in meetings, events and focus groups.
The service will offer service users the opportunity to employ an enabler who will:
Accompany them at meetings; Provide support during the meeting as required by the service user. For example, page turning, note taking; Support before and after the meeting if needed. For example, going through the agenda and any other documents, producing notes following the meeting.
A Personal Assistant (PA) is someone employed to help a person live independently and achieve the activities they want to do.
The Devon Personal Assistant Bank makes recruiting a Personal Assistant easier by bringing everyone together.
The service allows individuals to search a list of Personal Assistants or agencies, advertise job vacancies and contact people they wish to interview. The Personal Assistant Bank can also provide further support with both the recruitment and employment of Personal Assistants.
