  • Get Together & Be Informed

    The initial Get Together & Be Informed Fife Event took place in January as a joint iniative led by SDS Options (Fife), SPAEN and the PA Network Scotland.  The event was attended by Personal Assistants and their Employers who all arrived with an open and enthusiastic attitude which was evident throughout the day.

  • PA Network : Members Forum

    We are pleased that the PA Network has successfully secured funding from Scottish Government to continue and develop our services to PAs.  However, in an attempt to maximise the work we can do and the current limited use of the Forum, we regret to advise that the Forum part of our service will close shortly.  The remainder of our support will remain in place and we will continue to provide a phone, email, online and face to face support network to PAs.
