Founded by Polly Hadden-Paton and Vicky Silverthorn, You Need A PA offers its clients a ‘pay as you go’ PA service.

Combining their wealth of knowledge, their years of experience, and their extensive list of contacts, Polly and Vicky have created a highly professional and bespoke service, which tends to each individual’s requests and needs.

Each client can rely on a designated PA to get the job done in an efficient, yet speedy way – over a morning, a day or on a more regular basis.

No contract. No commitment. No hassle. As and when you like.



Every booking is tailormade to suit the individual client and can range from the ordinary to the extraordinary! The aim is to de-stress and organise each client in an efficient and methodical way so they can create more time for themselves.

You Need a PA’s Little Black Book is full of reliable companies, fantastic services and reputable brands – meaning that we have a constant ‘go to’, whatever the request.

Our clients range from busy families with hectic schedules, to business men and women trying to find that extra hour in the day, even small start up companies needing organisational guidance.

We make it our business to know about the latest trends, products and services that we think you’ll love.


My to do list was getting out of control – so I called the girls. Holiday – done. Move – done. Organised before the start of the season? YES!

I just wanted to say how stress free and easy it was working with Elle! Anyone from your team that we have had the pleasure working alongside have been amazing, and you seem to have a great team!
