Disability North Launch PA register in response to COVID19 crisis

We understand that during this crisis there is a need for flexibility and more Personal Assistants. Some employers may not be using their PAs and other employers will have PAs self-isolating or having to stay home due to child care or their own caring responsibilities. In response to concerns from employers and to assist Local Authorities and CCGs in their contingency planning we have set up a PA register below.

If you are currently working as a PA or as support staff in a day centre or other organisation and can offer hours to individual employers please complete the online registration form below.

People in need of support and looking for PAs can download and complete the online referral form here and email it to
