This website has been created to address the lack of peer support available to disabled people who employ their own Personal Assistants (PAs). Being the Boss aims to do this by sharing information based on the experiences of disabled people who employ their 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. Everyone has different approaches which must be valued and respected. However, everyone can learn and support one another to become better employers and have a better relationship with their PAs.
The website also contains the latest news on Social Care and Direct Payments, benefits news and welfare reform.
All disabled people who employ, or who are thinking of employing their own Personal Assistant are welcome to join the Being the Boss community.
