John,

Like I said, contact Brendan.  At least he will advise you for free.

His number is 01905 28286.  I'm sure he won't mind me giving it you, since
it's on his web site, http://www.magill.co.uk.

All the best

Steve

friend of mine who was then unable to continue with their business because
they were no longer able to employ a support worker. Very counter productive
in my opinion in these times where the government are supposedly trying to
get disabled people into work.

knowledge in negotiating the best outcomes for people with regard to Access

running $ In other words he would not engage in paid work with you or on
your behalf without getting your agreement and assurance that you understand
his terms and your commitment.
