Launch of a NEW Specialist PA Agency
As a direct response to requests from our members, Bromley Mencap is opening a specialist Personal Assistant (PA) Agency, to provide support to people with learning and physical disabilities. This service is to enable disabled people to get out and about in their local communities and access day opportunities.
We have 20 highly professional Personal Assistants/Support Workers experienced in supporting people with disabilities who have completed:-
- Bromley Mencap’s comprehensive Induction Programme
- the Care Certificate – a CQC requirement for all PAs
- Enhanced DBS checks
- and are covered by Bromley Mencap’s Employee Insurance.
PAs/Support Workers can provide support:-
- to go to day opportunities
- at day services
- to access the local community
- to assist with budgeting/shopping
- to access leisure/learning opportunities
PAs are available to work flexible hours, full-time and part-time, at weekends and during holiday periods.
Please take a minute to vote for Bromley Mencap to become Sainsbury’s Local Charity Partner at their Bromley and Beckenham stores.
Sainsbury’s are now looking for Local Charity Partners and Bromley Mencap has been shortlisted at both the Bromley and Beckenham stores! Customer voting is open now both in-store and online at https://www.sainsburyslocalcharity.co.uk/
We have enjoyed a very successful relationship with both the Sainsbury’s Bromley and Beckenham stores in the past couple of years and they have helped us raise over £6,000 so we would really appreciate this opportunity again. Please vote for us and tell family and friends to vote too so we can raise much needed funds to deliver our services.
