What are direct payments?
Direct Payments are designed to give people who need social care and support more choice and control. They can help you achieve the things that are most important to you in life.
If you need a lot of help staying independent, safe and well, you might benefit from a Direct Payment. It is money paid directly to you by the Council that will enable you to choose:
- The type of support you need
- Who will provide it and when
- How they will provide it
