About

Since November 2014 Portsmouth City Councils Adult Social Care Department has delivered the PA Noticeboard Service. The purpose of this service is to give people choice and control over their care, and people from all backgrounds and experiences the opportunity to become a PA.

What is a PA?

A PA is someone who is paid to support someone to live their lives more fully and independently.  Click here to read more about being a PA.

How Does it Work?

To use this website you must register, either as an Individual Employer or PA. Once you’ve completed your account you will be able to log in and use the website.

PAs can apply for any position advertised.  You apply for the role you want, we don’t direct you to someone, you decide for yourself. You work directly for the individual you are supporting, they pay you, provide you with training should it be required and we support both of you with the agreement. We are here to support you with any questions you may have.

We recommend rates of pay between £8.50 to £10+ per hour. It depends on the role, your experience and what the person is looking for.

Individual Employers must advertise their available role and can then review PA’s online profiles.  You write the job description, you decide who works for you. This may seem a bit daunting but we can support you with up to date information, advice, guidance and one to one support.

Clients of Adult Social Care maybe provided with some or total cost of funding to pay their PA, if you have not had an assessment please contact Adult Social Care to find out if you are eligible.   If you do not want an assessment or you do not meet funding eligibility you can pay for your PA privately. We call this self-funding. Anyone in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas can have a PA, you don’t have to be a client of Adult Social Care.
