Camden PAs - find a health and social care PA

CamdenPAs is a low cost service making it easy to find a Health & Social Care PA

A personal assistant (sometimes called a PA or carer) is an employed person who gives support with everyday tasks to an Employer – this may be a person who is looking for some assistance either because of their age or disability. A PA’s role is to enable their Employer to live as independently as possible.

CamdenPAs is an online ‘marketplace’ where PAs and individual Employers (those looking for support) come together. It is a place where local PAs can advertise themselves and Employers can find and contact PAs. Both parties can communicate anonymously through the site until they are ready to take recruitment further.

CamdenPAs vets PAs to ensure they are of a high standard. All PAs are Right to Work Checked, reference checked and have a face-to-face interview.
