Why choose direct payments?
Direct payments were introduced to enable people to have more choice about how they receive assistance from the council.
Direct payments put you in control because you are the best person to decide what support you need to live as safely and independently as possible.
Choosing this option means that you can make choices about what type of support would improve your wellbeing and quality of life. It also offers more choice than a traditional support package managed by the council.
