I hope you do manage to find a good PA though. I know a very dedicated colleague of mine who is looking for PA jobs for people with various disabilities. She has 3 years experience working with teenagers with autism but I think Manchester is too far away for her. I'm sure you will find a dedicated person near Manchester.

My assessor recommended twelve hours per week if I get catered accommodation and twenty-five hours if I need help to make meals. With a PA instead of a NAS worker, I should be able to afford about ten. There is something very wrong if that's all people with severe autism and complex epilepsy are getting. :? It's barely enough for me, let alone for them.

I have asked the Manchester disability office to investigate why my application for accommodation was declined by that hall, and they're going to suggest other suitable places for me to live. Hopefully it should all turn out all right.
