Susanne's Story

Funded by Scottish Government, the Personal Assistants Network Scotland is a WEA Scotland project providing a support network to all PAs working directly for the person they support via Self Directed Support. Susanne’s Story highlights some of the benefits of being involved with the PA Network through attendance at various network meetings and learning opportunities enabling her and her colleagues to be a more confident and knowledgeable team.

Made me understand the importance that adult education can play in improving people's lives.

It gave me further insight into issues adults face with literacy and how I could look out for this with the adults I work with.

Excellent course, I had very limited knowledge of dyslexia so found this course very useful. Good use of activities and real life examples
