How to register if you are looking for a PA

As someone looking for a PA you should register on the website and complete your role profile. This is the information that PA’s will see so if you can try to include as much information about the role and include something about you too. It’s important to give the PA’s an idea of the role and the person they’ll be supporting.

Some people receive funding from Adult Social Care to pay for their PA, we call this a Direct Payment. To find out if you might be entitled to support and/or funding you will be assessed. Click here for further information on the Isle of Wight Council’s criteria for funding.

If you require support with writing your job description, or you have questions about the next steps please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We are here to support you throughout your PA search and afterwards.
