The Most Comprehensive Platform for Self-Employed Carers, PAs & Micro-Providers in the UK

Our vision is to promote and support the safe working of (self-employed) micro providers across the UK.

The ILG-PA/NACAS partnership is looking to become the organisation of choice to support micro providers giving them the tools, information, and advice that they need to set up their own business and to provide care and support to the highest standards.

ILG-PA/NACAS aims to open discussions with local authorities and funding bodies around the safe and controlled roll out of micro provision.

The overall purpose is to give greater choice and control to individuals looking at a direct payment to support themselves or someone close to them.

The ILG specialises in the social care & health sectors and this is our newest project which aims to support, inform and make things easier and better for all in the future.
