NB: The website is for disabled people who employ PAs however they are funded -
This website has been created to address the lack of peer support available to disabled people who employ our own Personal Assistants (PAs). We aim to do this by sharing information based on the experiences of disabled people who employ our own PAs, and by providing a safe forum to discuss/share ideas. It is very important to appreciate that there is no ONE correct way of working with PAs. We all have our different approaches and we must respect and value this. However, we can all learn from and support each other to become better employers and to have a better relationship with our PAs.
STOP PRESS: The 'Being the Boss' organisation of PA employers has now been formed. Click here for more information and an application form. Click here to order the Handbook for Disabled Employers and Their Personal Assistants.
Being the Boss is now able to offer a payroll service to disabled people employing their own Personal Assistants, support workers or carers. The cost per employee is £8 per month and includes full calculation of wages due, production of a payslip and a statement to you as the employer of what you need to pay to the Inland Revenue and to the employee. The production of P60s, Tax Return Year Ends and P45s are also available at an additional charge. If you are interested in accessing this service please email firstname.lastname@example.org
