York Personal Support provides Personal Assistants (PAs) for students who are studying in York.
Support provided includes:
- Personal Care – for visits of a minimum of one hour.
- Personal Support Assistants – To provide practical and mobility support.
- Work Placement Support – for students undertaking work experience placements as part of their studies.
We meet with all students to develop a support plan, to monitor and review the support plan and carefully match students with PAs.
If you are working, you may have been assessed through the Access to Work Scheme as requiring a PA to support you in the workplace and we can provide a suitable PA for you.
All our personal and work based PAs have enhanced DBS certificates and receive regular supervision and training.
WHAT OUR SERVICE
“I really enjoy [my PA’s] company. She is very knowledgeable across many areas. She is flexible and adaptable.”
“I also just wanted to let you know how well the arrangements are working with [our PA]. She is a lovely girl and [my daughter] is very happy to have her as her PA. She takes the time to listen to [my daughter] and is very in tune with her. [My daughter] says she feels like she is going out with a friend when they are together, and her confidence is growing as a result.”
“[My PA] is friendly, caring and supportive…excellent, thank you!”
