Getting out and about

If you arrange your own support – either because you have a personal budget or because you’re paying for it yourself – you can choose your own support worker or find someone through a care agency to help you get out and about. These workers are often known as personal assistants.

In Leeds, advice about employing a personal assistant can be obtained from the Direct Payment and Personal Assistants Support Hub. 

Visit the Direct Payment and Personal Assistant Support Hub

You can also find a list of home care and home support services listed on the Leeds Directory.
