Advice and support for employing a personal assistant carer
You’ll be an employer if you’re a person with care needs or their nominated person who employs (or wants to employ) a carer or personal assistant through their direct payment. Our services can help you find a carer or personal assistant to directly employ.
You’ll be an employee if you provide or are looking to provide care services to a person with care needs through their direct payment. We have current vacancies on our Personal Assistant Register which you can sign up to for free.
You'll then need to send it to the Direct Payment Client Service Team (DPCST) County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2UE or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
