Penderels Trust is a charity that supports people with disabilities (clients) to live independently in their own home. They are currently contracted by Derbyshire County Council to operate an approved Personal Assistant Register. The aim of the service is to provide a central register where clients can search for a suitable PA who has already been vetted and approved by a member of our team, thus ensuring that the necessary safeguarding concerns are being addressed. For more information see Information for Carers or Information for those Seeking Support.
