At Bryant’s Care we understand the difficulties parents face looking after a child with additional needs, As a parent of a child with special needs, I have first-hand experience of how difficult life can be juggling studying at university, working and trying to maintain a social life! I have noticed a gap in the market for childcare for children with special needs for example my daughter is deaf so someone that signs is a must! In a large percentage of cases, access to morning or after-school clubs is restricted; which makes it extremely hard for the parents to work a regular 9-5 job or even have a few hours in the evening to go to the gym or for a meal with the knowledge that you're leaving your child with someone with adequate skills to meet their needs.
So I wanted to provide a service that enables parents to source care on their terms leaving them safe in the knowledge that their loved one is in safe, capable hands. so we designed Bryants Care to make life a bit easier by providing a database of nannies, babysitters, childminders and PA’s to enhance your child’s life. We aim to provide a valuable service for families of children and young adults with additional needs and cut the cost of rocketing agency fees.

What do I have to do when I become an employer?
As an employer you are required to deduct tax and National Insurance from a nanny's salary Revenue Enquiry Officials provide special simplified documentation for employers of nannies, PAs, babysitters and childminders. For further inquiries regarding tax and national insurance, you can ring the Employer's Helpline on 0845 226 2203.
Domestic employers have the same legal obligations as commercial employers under UK employment law. If you employ a nanny and pay them above the weekly threshold (£105 in tax-year 08/09), you are legally required to register with HMRC as an employer and operate a PAYE scheme on their behalf.
We highly recommend using either Way2Paye or Nanny Tax both specializing in payroll for nannies. You must check your childcare provider has an up-to-date and clear DBS Check, Paediatric First Aid qualification and excellent and checkable references. Experience working with special needs children is essential.
