A Personal Assistant (PA) is someone who is employed to provide everyday care and support for adults, children or young people.
This may include personal and domestic care, helping someone access their local community, as well as other day to day activities.
Having a PA to provide support gives flexiblity, choice and control over care and helps promote independence.
Here is our Personal Assistant Network which includes people who work with children, young people and/or adults.
