The Disability Resource Centre use CarePair to provide people that have set-up a Direct Payment to be in control of employing their own Personal Assistant (PA).
CarePair is a free service helping carers and employers find each other as quickly and easily as possible, suggesting the most appropriate pairings based on things you both have in common.
If you are a PA looking for work simply enter your details, tell the database what you’d be happy to do, your lifestyle and job preferences, when you are available to work and let CarePair find the right position for you.

Personal assistants are employed by disabled or older people who need someone to help with their daily needs, both personal and social.
The Disability Resource Centre is pleased to be able to post jobs from employers who are looking to recruit personal assistants. Each employer and each job is different. Hours of work, duties and skills required vary for each employer.
