What can Direct Payments be used for?

Direct payments may be used to meet any of your eligible social care outcomes, which are identified during your outcome based assessment

For example, you may use the money to buy:

  • Support with personal care and daily living tasks
  • Support to get out and about in the community
  • Support to maximise your independence, health, wellbeing and safety

You could employ a Personal Assistant (PA) of your choice to help you, or you may use the money to buy one-off equipment or support services from an agency.
