Direct payments is a system where Social Services give service users the money directly to pay for their own care, rather than the traditional route of local authority providing care for them.
Direct Payments can empower an individual by enabling them to have more of a say in how the support they recieve is provided as well as who by, thus promoting a sense of well being, independance and control over their own life.
Each person in reciept of a Direct Payment is given an amount of money which can be managed by themselves, or by a family member, an advocate or even Social Services - this is called " Direct Payment with a Managed Account". This money is then used to purchase any services that meets their needs. Local authorities have a mandatory duty to offer Direct Payment to all persons who are eligible to recieve them.
To find our more about Direct Payments you must speak to your local council about how to recieve them and whether you are eligible to recieve them or look at www.gov.uk for further information. We offer person - centred services to maximise your independance so if you would like more information on Direct Payments please give us a call on 01902 42 02 68 to speak to one of our friendly team.
