Personal assistants

A personal assistant is someone who is employed directly by a person who needs support to enable them to live their life as fully and independently as possible.

A personal assistant may provide support with many aspects of their employer's life, for example providing personal care, and also assist the person to meet their friends, go to work and participate in community activities.

Employing personal assistants

An online interactive version of the Employing Personal Assistants toolkit is available.
