Supporting people to employ a Personal Assistant for their care

Tuesday 20 September 2016

When people choose a direct payment for their care and support, they often employ a Personal Assistant (PA) to provide their care and support. We are interested in talking to organisations about the support needed by people to employ a PA.

We will talk about the different types of support people require when they employ a PA, and the models for how this is provided in other areas. We would then like to hear your thoughts about the different models and whether your organisation could provide services to meet these needs. This could include support to recruit a PA, take up references and DBS checks as well as on-going support on employment issues.

The session will be an opportunity for you to explore with us whether this is a relevant service for your organisation to offer people who need to employ a PA. We would also like to hear what you would need to be able develop and deliver this support service.
