The Contract of Trust - a new resource for disabled people employing Personal Assistants (PA) or carers

ecdp is very happy to endorse the Contract of Trust - a new resource for disabled people employing carers / PAs.

We know disabled people have constantly told us that the relationship with a PA is critical to supporting them to become independent.

We see the Contract of Trust resource just as important as getting the right employer insurance cover in place or ensuring DBS (formally CRB) checks are undertaken.

It is another useful tool in the armoury to ensure you get the most from your personal budget when employing people.

The text and links below provide you with further details.

The Contract of Trust – a new resource for disabled people who employ their own carers / PAs

Trust is important in any relationship but particularly so between a disabled person and the care staff / PAs they employ. In response, SEMPA (standing for 'Supporting Employers Managing PAs') has filmed 21 employers of PAs sharing their experiences of trust and distrust in employing PAs, and living independently.

These video clips are available on 4 DVDs supported by a Workbook for use by employers in their own homes.

For a promotional video go to the SEMPA You Tube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Os5Afb4vOrw

SEMPA is very grateful for the support it has received from ecdp and its staff in the making of this resource.
