In your area

There are lots of organisations that can support individual employers and personal assistants (PAs). 

They can support you with a wide range of things, including, information on how you can use your direct payment or personal health budget to employ PAs. Some can also help to find PAs, manage their wages, insurance and training. They might also have a PA register where employers can find PAs and PAs can advertise that they are looking for work.
