Personal Assistants

Become a Personal Assistant (PA)

After enrolling with us, you will be listed in our Personal Assistants directory.


  • Only a person getting a Direct Payment from Social Work can employ you.
  • We do not vet candidates. The employer will make all necessary checks.
  • A listing does not guarantee employment as a PA. The PA directory is there to connect people only.

PVG membership

To enrol, you don't need to be a member of the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) scheme, although it would be very helpful. We always recommend prospective employers to carry out a PVG check before recruiting someone.

Getting advice

If you are thinking about becoming a PA, further information is available from SDS Scotland and Personal Assistants Network Scotland.
