About

The Isle of Wight PA Noticeboard is a brand new and exciting tool that lists PAs looking for work and Individuals looking for a PA on the Isle of Wight

The purpose of this service is to give people choice and control over their care, and people from all backgrounds and experiences the opportunity to become a PA.

What is a PA?

A PA is someone who is paid to support someone to live their lives more fully and independently.  Click here to read more about being a PA.

How Does it Work?

PAs can apply for any position advertised. You apply for the role you want, we don’t direct you to someone, you decide for yourself. You work directly for the individual you are supporting, you can be paid directly by the individual who manages their own direct payment or the local authority Isle of Wight Managed team. We are here to support you with any questions you may have.

Individuals must advertise their available role and can then review PA’s online profiles.  You write the job description, you decide who works for you. This may seem a bit daunting but we can support you with up to date 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 their PA. If you have not yet had an assessment to determine your funding eligibility, please contact Adult Social Care to find out more.
If you do not want an assessment or you do not meet funding eligibility, you can pay for you PA privately, we call this self-funding. Anyone on the Isle of Wight can have a PA, you do not have to be a referred through Adult Social Care.
