Personal Assistants

The Care Council for Wales has developed an employer toolkit to support the learning of personal assistants. The toolkit is for people who receive direct payments and employ or are considering employing a personal assistant.

Click to access the toolkit

We have an induction programme specifically for personal assistants covering basic principles on values of care, safeguarding, communication and promoting health and safety. For further information, please contact us

Personal assistants are also welcome on other courses we run, if supported by their employer.
