What is a Personal Assistant?

Personal Assistants (PAs) undertake a valuable role supporting adults and children to live as independently as possible in their daily life, often providing support in people’s own homes or out in the community. The role can vary based on the needs of the individual, some may have more social needs while others need help with mobility and personal care. PA support may be for a few hours each day or the PA may be part of a team that delivers 24 hours care.

You may already have some experience in supporting people or you may be seeking a new challenge and have transferrable skills and knowledge that would suit being a PA.

If you would like further details about the role of a PA, please visit the Skills for Care information hub Personal Assistants (skillsforcare.org.uk) where you can find out about what the role of being a PA is like and access their brochure 'Being a Personal Assistant'.
