  • How reimbursed expenses are ignored for service user involvement
  • How to fill in a Permitted Work form for service user involvement and avoid misunderstandings about your incapacity for work, mobility and care needs
  • When your payments will be treated as averaged across several weeks and about responsibility for tax.
