Personal Care Administration

self directed support

Do you have a care package and would like someone to manage it for you?

You may have Self Directed Support in the form of Direct Payments or have a care package or award from your Local Authority or ILF (Independent Living Fund), or of course privately finance your own care?

You may employ your carers / personal assistants or use the services of an agency, or maybe both?  Our Care Services Team can help!

With over 20 years’ experience in managing care package funds; we have a dedicated Payroll team to process wages for your employees and a dedicated Care Agency team to pay your invoices for you.
