Who can be my Personal Assistant / Carer?

Payroll Services



A direct payment is not intended to replace existing networks of family support. However you can choose to employ a friend, neighbour, or sometimes a member of your family, as long as they do not live in your house.


You can use your Direct Payments to pay for a carer from a care agency. This may require making a contribution into the care account as many agencies charge more then what your council are able to fund.


Alternatively Local Support Team will be happy to assist you in recruiting a Personal Assistant through the local newspaper or alternative means which he/she can discuss with you.


Choosing your Personal Assistant is an enjoyable part of the process. If you do advertise in the local newspaper / Job centre / Facebook, Local Support Team will fully support you throughout the process.
