Encompass can help people to recruit, manage and organise their own staff by offering a range of services to enable them to live independently (see Services).

We can help you with:

  • advertising for staff – safe recruitment and all the other tasks involved in employing people
  • advice on employing staff –  budgeting
  • comprehensive payroll services – third party banking
  • liaising with social care and health services.

The services we offer are all about making life easier for you.  Being an employer is a complex role, and you can have peace of mind knowing that you, or someone on your behalf, can rely on support from us.

We are a friendly and approachable user-led organisation and put YOU at the centre of what we do.
