Help make a difference to Gedling people

We need more Personal Assistants (PAs) in Gedling to provide care and support to adults who struggle with daily tasks such as:

  • personal care
  • domestic care
  • shopping
  • leisure activities
  • social activities.

PAs play an important role in supporting the people they work for by helping them to live independently and remain in their home and community. They may support older people, people with mental health needs or physical / learning disabilities.

Anyone who is interested in this flexible and rewarding career can join our ‘Support with Confidence’ scheme – an accredited list of PAs who have had free online training and background checks.

Looking for some fun and light exercise on a Friday evening? Then look no further!

We meet every Friday (starting at 7.20pm) in Woodborough Village Hall to play carpet bowls. We don’t take it too seriously, so absolute beginners are welcome. Your first visit is free so you can give it a try at on us (if you decide to join, it’s £5 annual membership plus £2 per attendance).

We currently have members from Woodborough, Arnold and Calverton, but wherever you live, we’d love to see you.

Want to know more? Then give Kate a call on 0115 9652376.
