A direct payment is a way of paying your personal budget.
Instead of arranging services for you, we pay your personal budget directly to you into a bank account. You use it to arrange and pay for the services and support agreed in your support plan.
You'll be given a personal budget to spend if your local council decide you're eligible for help with any social care and support you need. You can request an assessment from the council to establish your needs.
Carers aged 18 or over may also be entitled to a personal budget after having a carer's assessment.
