dc.descriptionThe report looks at Ireland’s Personal Assistant (PA) service, a service for people with significant physical and sensory disabilities that is mainly funded by the Health Service Executive (HSE). The study aimed to explore the meaning of the ‘PA service’ today, its key positive features, and the ways in which these features could be protected and strengthened. The research involved a review of policy documents as well as interviews with a range of stakeholders to gain their perspectives on the evolution of the service. The core work consisted of one-to-one interviews with thirty people using a PA service. These individuals were of different ages, lived in different parts of the country and had different types and degrees of disability. The interviews focussed on each person’s experience using the service to pursue a full and active life.en_GB
