Employers Liability, Public Liability & Legal Expenses cover for people receiving care through Direct Payments.
If you have a Direct Payments funded Personal Assistant, you are regarded as an employer under UK law and have specific responsibilities to your employees. Things such as managing payroll, taxes and having the right insurance, are crucial things for you to consider. Fortunately, you do have the option to appoint a third party to provide direct payments guidance, maintain your personal budget, payroll and insurance, if you would rather not have that extra responsibility.
You can obtain personal health budgets as disability direct payments that allow you more freedom over the support you receive, for example;
- Arranging Personal Assistance with specialist expertise
- Ensure that the Personal Assistant is fluent in the same language
- Opportunity to purchase things that offer independence such as Mobility Scooters and Wheelchairs.
