Personal Assistants and Employers of Personal Assistants

Personal Assistants and Employers of Personal Assistants

On this page you’ll find a selection of resources which are aimed directly at Personal Assistants and employers of Personal Assistants. Our thanks go to colleagues at Self Directed Support Scotland who we have worked with in collaboration to compile the info for this page.

The Personal Assistant’s Network Scotland provides an online space for Personal Assistants to access learning and training opportunities developed specifically for Personal Assistants and meet other Personal Assistants to discuss shared needs and experiences. You’ll also find a whole host of really useful, practical information and advice, all tailored to your needs as a Personal Assistant.

Often, with new situations, the most daunting part is not knowing what to expect. That may be particularly true when it comes to taking on the role of Personal Assistant or when employing a Personal Assistant. Whether you are a Personal Assistant or thinking of becoming one, or you are employing a Personal Assistant, it’s important to know what to expect from the role. The PA and PA Employer handbooks have been created to help get you started with what you need to know.

In this webinar recording from Skills for Care, you can hear PA employers sharing their experiences and some of the things they’ve done to help support their wellbeing. There is also some info provided around different resources and tools which might be helpful.

Welcome to the Hub. We hope you’ll find the support you’re looking for. To help us improve the site and make it relevant to you, please take a minute to answer a few quick questions. Thank you.
