To help PAs find work and people to search for a PA, there’s an
easy-to-use online register at www.norfolk.gov.uk/paregister
PAs can advertise the services they offer free of charge.
It’s all part of our new Direct Payment Support Service (DPSS), which supports people who receive direct payments to pay
for their care.
