SPAEN is launching a range of new “closed Facebook groups” to allow Personal Assistant Employers across Scotland to network and connect.
The groups will be based on local authority council areas initially with SPAEN members on Facebook requesting to join the group or groups that are most relevant to them. To get the groups started, the “administrator” role will be held with SPAEN but we’d like to encourage members and users to take greater control and ownership of the groups with individuals volunteering as “moderators” and “contributors”.
Because the group is closed, members of the group and their online discussions will be hidden from internet search engines, allowing you to talk openly and safely about your experience of being a PA employer; Self-directed Support or any other issue or topic you might think will be of interest to others in your area.
SPAEN Facebook groups will only be available to registered SPAEN members but we continue to welcome non-members on our open Facebook page where you can source the latest employment related updates.
