How Does it Work?

PA’s;

Once registered and accredited on the PA Noticeboard, PA’s can apply for any position advertised on the board. There is no limit to how many positions you can apply for however, please be mindful that if you are no longer interested in a position the correct procedure is to inform the PA Market Team, Social Care Team or individual involved.

When working as a PA in Care you will be working directly for the individual you are supporting, you may be paid directly by the individual who self-funds or manages their own direct payment or the local authority Direct Payment Support Service (DPSS Team). Find out more about direct payments here.

Individuals should advertise their role on the Noticeboard and can also review PA’s online profiles.  The job description should work for you, click here to see a template job advert. This may seem a bit daunting, but we can support you with information, advice, guidance and one to one support.

Some individuals referred to Adult Social Care may be provided with some or the total cost of their funding to pay for their PA. If you have not yet had an assessment to determine your funding eligibility, please contact Adult Social Care to find out more. Anyone on the Isle of Wight can have a PA, you do not have to be a referred through Adult Social Care.
