Support Worker general question

Hi...does anyone know if Mental Health Support Workers get expenses paid?
I see a lady a few times a month, we always go to a coffeehouse, and she always pays for our coffee.
I've never offered to pay and it's only just occurred to me!
I'm seeing her tomorrow and am going to offer to get them in for a change, but I just wanted to feel less bad about all the ones she has paid for-hoping that she can claim it back!
If no, I'll splash on a cake for her too!

I always pay for my carers expenses
Similar coffee or whatever.
I wouldn't let her pay, ever

Oh. And I Employ my own carer. No agencies or anything. Sorry. My answer isn't helpful really. smile

I'm sure they'll be reclaimed by her as well as petrol etc.

I have a MH support worker from my local NHS trust and she claims back expenses.
