The PA Café aims to be a space where people can get information about issues related to independent living and personal assistance. The PA Café is being established by Independent Living Alternatives, established 1989 as an organisation of disabled people and has a background in providing user-controlled personal assistance.

The PA Café does NOT provide advice; its aim is to share information, signpost people to resources, highlight good practice and answering your questions. ILA does not endorse any information, organisation or product mentioned in the PA Café.

We hope that you will want to join us in promoting positive images of independent living and personal assistance.


  • Please do not reveal your personal details such as your address or phone number to people in the PA Café

  • Whilst sharing information is important, mindless gossip is not encouraged - please remember confidentiality and how small the disability world can be!

  • Please do not discriminate against other people or use discriminatory language-we will remove any offensive or inappropriate messages

  • Please let everyone have a say - there is never one solution to an issue and everyone's comment is valid

  • The PA Café is only for people aged 18 and over

  • There are moderators overseeing the PA Café on a daily basis

  • If you fail to comply with the rules of the PA Café you will be refused access
