Welcome to Penderels Trust Salford & Greater Manchester

Covid-19 Pandemic Information

'Spirit of Salford' is the combined efforts of organisations (including Salford City Council and NHS Salford) in Salford to help everyone in the city stay safe and help reduce the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19. Their information can be found in the flyers that can be downloaded from the bottom the page.

A letter (updated November 2020) to direct payment recipients in Salford from adult social care services/NHS provides lots of useful information about support available during the Coronavirus pandemic.  If you receive a direct payment, you may have already received this letter but you can download a copy at the bottom of this page.

There is also some information on the safe use of medicines.

Covid-19 Vaccine for Personal Assistants

We have been working with Salford City Council and Salford NHS to make sure they have the right information to invite PAs for their Covid-19 vaccination.  We have written to all direct payment employers so you should have had a letter about the plan in Salford. Your PA will be invited directly via letter which will include a booking code. If you are a PA, please ask your employer for more information. 

Salford COVID-19 Testing for Personal Assistants

Lateral Flow Testing

Free lateral flow tests can be ordered via  https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests until 1st April. After then, some individuals will still be eligible for free tests; the details of which will be announced by the Government in the coming weeks. 

PAs can still pick up LFT tests via one of the local community test centres which are now open. This testing is for PAs who do not have any of the identified symptoms of Covid-19. Bookings can be made via the following link: https://contactus.salford.gov.uk/?formtype=BOOK_LFT

You can read more in our Frequently Asked Questions documents which can be opened/downloaded from our Covid-19 section on our home page.

If you have any further questions or require further information, please contact Chris Ogden at Salford Clinical Commissioning Group via: Christopher.ogden@nhs.net

Great Manchester Personal Assistant Network Opportunity

Are you an organisation, group or forum who are passionate about supporting the personal assistant network? Could you represent the issues, challenges, and good practice that takes place within your borough? 

Organisations/representatives who join the panel will receive £1000 to attend 10 monthly meetings between February and November and gather feedback from employers and PAs in their locality. 

For more information and to apply, please head to their website www.embracewiganandleigh.org.uk/gmpan

Are you a great PA who would like to be more involved in promoting the role?

We have three opportunities for you to do just that.  In summary, these are:

1) Become a Penderels Trust PA Champion 

2) Get involved in the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and let them know your experiences of being a PA (free shopping voucher for involvement)

3) Do you support someone living with a neurological condition like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease? Neurocare KnowHow are looking for PAs to share their stories (free shopping voucher for involvement). 

For more information on all these opportunities, please download the PA Champions flyer at the bottom of this page.
