Direct Payments

Direct payments give parents of a disabled child, the opportunity to receive cash payments to buy and manage their child’s care, instead of receiving children’s services.

With direct payments you can receive money from the council instead of receiving care services such as personal care, short breaks and so on. This allows you to arrange and pay for your disabled child’s care package on your own, if you choose to.

This scheme offers parents and carers of disabled children greater flexibility and independence as services can be tailored to suit the specific needs of the child and the family.
