Welcome to the information hub for individual employers and personal assistants (PAs), which brings together really useful information from lots of different places.

If you employ your own care and support using a direct payment, personal health budget (PHB) or self-funding, visit the 'Information for individual employers' section for more information about recruiting, managing and developing your PA(s). You can also find links to local organisations on the ‘In your area’ section.

If you're a personal assistant, visit the 'Working as a PA' section for useful information about finding a role, health and safety, and training. If you work in an organisation that supports individual employers and PAs, visit the 'For LAs, NHS and support organisations' section for practical tools, research and funding opportunities.
