What Should I Pay My Personal Assistant?

Salvere advisors can help you to work out a rate of pay for the people who work for you to get the right support. We will help you to understand the best way to do this taking into consideration how you plan to make a better life within the limits of your budget. This is to ensure that you will have enough surplus funds left over to meet your responsibilities as an employer. Pay rates can vary accordingly. 

As a rough guide Salvere recommend that you should look to pay your Personal Assistant no more than £7.50 - £8.00 an hour for the work they do for you. This is the gross payment. This is to ensure that you will have enough surplus funds left over in your budget to meet your responsibilities as an employer. In some cases a higher or lower rate may be appropriate. An Independent Living Advisor will be able to talk you through this to ensure you get it right for you. Feel free to call Salvere before agreeing a pay rate with potential Personal Assistants.
