Have more control over who helps you at home
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. These workers are often known as personal assistants.
In Leeds, advice about employing a personal assistant is available from the Actively Seeking Independence Support Team (ASIST).
You can also find a list of home care and home support services listed on the Leeds Directory.
