A Personal Assistant (PA) is someone who is employed to provide everyday care and support. This may include personal and domestic care, support to get out and about, as well as other day to day activities. A PA can offer the most control over services as they are better able to support an individual's specific needs and promote independence. All PA's listed on NottsHelpYourself have completed the Nottinghamshire County Council's Support with Confidence Programme. The scheme is free and open to all existing and prospective Personal Assistants wanting to work within Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City.
