Derbyshire approved Personal Assistant Register
We've developed the Derbyshire approved personal assistant register with Penderels Trust.
All personal assistants have been vetted and checked and meet our standards of training and ability.
They will also have signed up to our code of conduct. If you're looking for a personal assistant or are a personal assistant looking for work the register is free and straightforward to use.
Let us know what you think. To give us feedback about the register email email@example.com or call Penderels Trust on Local Rate 08456 000 683
If you're looking to employ someone to meet your care and support needs we know it can be a daunting task. Finding the right personal assistant is important and it can be difficult to know where to begin to find that right person.
The register is free to use whether you're receiving community care funding or paying for your own care. You can use the register 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
You'll be able to see a list of approved personal assistants looking for work in your area and use the criteria to find the right one for you.
You'll still be able to choose the person you employ and they'll work for you, not the county council or Penderels Trust.
You'll still need to interview them to make sure they're right for you and you'll have to meet all your legal obligations as an employer. Help is available to support you with this:
Read the guidance and start searching here for an approved personal assistant.
