London Metropolitan undertakes a facilitation role in respect of students who require support workers. Students who have recruited their own support worker will be allowed to register them to work on University premises. We are also happy to assist students who require personal support as well as study related support by helping them to liaise with Social Services. In such cases, it may be possible for available funding to be pooled to finance a single support worker.
As Disabled Students' Allowances are paid gross, we have found that most students do not wish to take on the responsibilities of employing their support workers. We have therefore reached an agreement with Randstad Student Support who provide a pool of trained support workers. London Metropolitan will facilitate the matching of such support workers to aid the students. All employment responsibilities are undertaken by Randstad, including tax, national insurance and payroll.
