There are two ways you can look for notices on linkAssist – by using the search function, or by browsing one of the six categories.
To search for notices, click the search button and type in what you are looking for.
To browse for notices, select one of the six categories by clicking the category buttons at the top of your screen, or the boxes on the linkAssist home page. The linkAssist categories are:
1 Accommodation: wanted, available, rent, share, own, selling

6 Does anyone know? Ask a question, make suggestions, referrals, answers wanted, share information, help others
- Once you have selected a category, you can use the options on the bar to the left of the page to refine your search. This options bar will appear when ever you search for notice, or when you browse by category.
Notices on linkAssist can be sorted by region. This means you can view notices by location. You can select multiple regions, or just one.
You can also find creates by type – wanted or available.
If you search for notices that are marked as wanted, it means the person who created the notice is looking or asking for something. This could be as simple as looking for a second-hand wheelchair or a new personal carer, or asking for answers to a question or for advice.
Available notices means that a notice is offering something. This could be as simple as letting people know about their free accessible taxi service, or offering accommodation with a room to rent.
