The PA Pages has been set up to help disabled people who use Direct Payments recruit
Personal Assistants (PAs) more easily. PA work is extremely varied, and is all about
providing whatever help someone needs to live the life they want to live. You don't
have to have previous experience, it can be an excellent way into PA work.
PA Pages covers the whole of West Sussex and is split into 6 areas as shown in the
map on the last page. You can join however many areas you wish, based on how far
you would be prepared to travel. If you live on a border between areas, it would
probably make sense to join both areas.
What could the PA Pages do for me?
By joining the pages as a PA you could find work which suits you. This could be
full-time, part-time or you could provide temporary cover, something for which there
is a big demand. The numbers of people using the scheme are growing all the time
and so more and more work is becoming available.
People who work as PAs say that they enjoy:
working directly for a disabled person
helping a disabled person stay independent
a rewarding job
If you join the pages, the benefits for you are:
specifying the type of work you’d like and when you’re available
being able to work for one or more people
finding work in your local area, or as far afield as you wish
