A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Disability Action Haringey are keen to increase the number of Personal Carers for Direct Payment Holders in Haringey. A Direct Payment holder is someone who receives funds from the local authority to pay for care and support. This is called getting direct payments.
DAH are looking to match potential Personal Care Assistants across Haringey and beyond to create independence and social inclusion of the deaf and disabled residents in receipt of direct payments in the borough.
Disability Action Haringey is delivering Information workshops throughout July 2022 for residents to learn about the opportunity to become a Personal (Care) Assistant for Haringey's Direct Payment holders. We are keen to encourage members of the community to register directly by emailing us at Mash@d-a-h.org to be allocated a spot on one of our several workshops held throughout the month.
The pay rate is £11.05 per hour for Personal Care Assistants. The Direct Payment holder normally covers the cost of DBS clearance checks and may carry out relevant pre-employment checks at their discretion.
