Personal Assistants

Employ a Personal Assistant (PA)

If you receive a Direct Payment for Self-Directed Support, you can employ a PA using the funds.

All the PAs listed in our directory are members of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme.

You do not need to only consider people from this list.

Getting advice

You can get advice with managing a Direct Payment, including hiring a PA, through our partner agency The Lothian Centre for Inclusive Living.

You can also advertise directly for staff or look for PA vacancies through their website.
