If you are looking to employ someone to meet your care and support needs, we know it can be a daunting and sometimes expensive task. Finding the right personal assistant is important and it can be difficult to know where to begin to find that right person.
Purple Match has been created to help both employers and PA’s find their perfect match easily.

Using Purple Match
You will be able to access a list of personal assistants looking for work in your area and use the search criteria to find the right personal assistant for you. You will still be able to choose the person you employ and they will work for you, not Cambridgeshire County Council or Purple. You will still need to interview them to make sure they are right for you and you will have to meet all your legal obligations as an employer, but you will be able to message the individual online before meeting them in person. Help is available to support you with this (please contact your Independent Living Adviser).
As well as searching for a personal assistant an employer will also be able to create their own profile for PA’s to search and enquire.
A PA or Employer may be removed from Purple Match if they provide false or misleading information, we receive negative feedback from an employer, or if a safeguarding allegation is upheld. If you are concerned about someone’s continued inclusion on Purple Match, please contact us.
