I provide information, advice, support and training on issues relating to personalisation and Direct Payments. This includes support to directly employ Personal Assistants, use a home care agency or explore other ways to manage a Direct Payment.
I have successfully managed my own Direct Payments and employed PAs for the last 15 years.
Something not many people know about me:
I played and coached Powerchair Football for over 10 years, with a highlight of representing England in the inaugural Powerchair Football World Cup in Tokyo, Japan back in 2007.
