How to find work as a PA in East Sussex

You will not receive referrals directly from Adult Social Care workers. If a client of Adult Social Care is considering having a PA, they will first be directed to our Direct Payment Support Service provider, Independent Lives.

Independent Lives will work with the client to understand whether their package of care will be suitable for employed or self-employed PAs. They will also support clients in their search for a PA.

Independent Lives’ PA Pages bring together personal assistants and Direct Payment recipients. As a PA you can use these pages to advertise your availability, apply for roles and stay up to date with the latest health and social care news and information. Register: PA Pages (

Advertising your PA services

East Sussex 1Space is an online directory for care, support and wellbeing services where providers can list their services for free.  

Being on 1Space makes your service more visible and accessible to a wider audience in East Sussex as it is linked to our website and promoted by Adult Social Care and Health.

If you would like your service to be added to the 1Space directory, please visit: Suggest a Service - East Sussex 1Space  

The 1Space team will then contact you to confirm if it’s suitable for inclusion and to help you draft your listing

External registers and schemes

As PA you can also consider registering yourselves with various schemes and registers currently available for PA services.

We cannot provide any recommendations on these, you will therefore need to research and contact the organisations directly to find out more details.
