Sleepover pay rate

Now that the basic rate of pay in social care is £10.90, I’m wondering if this rate also applies to sleepovers?

Hi Allison,

The £10.90 rate applies to all hours worked, whether during the day or overnight. This rate applies to social care workers (including Personal Assistants) supporting adults.

We’ve updated the PA Handbook to clarify the rates and what to do if you’re not getting paid the minimum rate.


Thanks Kayleigh, I’m actually still waiting on my payslip to check! But I will be looking out for it.
