How do I get direct payments?
In order to receive direct payments, you must first be assessed by your local authority to determine the level of care you need. You then create a care plan, including a personal budget, which is agreed with the local authority.
Direct payments are put straight into your bank, Post Office, building society or National Savings and Investments account. The money given to you by the council must be used to pay for care services that have been agreed upon in your care plan, following your assessment with the local council.
We understand that finding the right care solution for yourself or a loved one can be confusing which is why we are here to help.
