DaCE Payroll service

DaCE runs a payroll service across Cumbria, for disabled people who employ their own staff and receive support from our independent living services. It is ideal for people who use Direct Payments, or Personal Health budgets.

Our service is geared towards meeting individual’s needs. You would be assigned a named payroll officer who would go out of their way to provide the support you need. We are always at the end of the phone and ready to help with any enquiries, or problems.

The process is a simple one: you advise us how many hours an employee has worked in the previous month and, unlike other payroll services, we will work everything out for you. We would also provide you with all the necessary documentation, such as pay slips.

We provide a comprehensive service, including providing pay slips and submitting end of year returns. We would deal with the Tax Office on your behalf, advise on contractual matters, work out sick pay, maternity pay and redundancy pay (should this issue arise).

Managed Accounts

DaCE also manages Direct Payments funds for people who find it difficult to manage accounts themselves. The funds are held in a bank account or a pre-paid card provided by the Council and all expenditure from that account is used according to the service users instructions.

DaCE will carry out all the transactions on behalf of service users, such as paying staff or agency fees. It leaves the service user free to enjoy the benefits of the direct payment.

If you use this service you may also receive hands on support from our Independent Living Co-ordinators.
