DIRECT PAYMENT SCHEME

Living independently is about having choice and control over your life and Direct Payments can help by giving you the choice to arrange and pay for your own care rather than let your local authority do this for you.

Direct Payments are a different, more flexible, way of delivering social care services. You can choose to become an employer and directly hire a carer to work for you, however you will be responsible for their care as an employee. That means taking care of PAYE and National Insurance payments along with arranging holiday cover and the legalities of employment law.

Many individuals who use Direct Payments use the service of independent agencies such as ourselves, removing the need for the individual to directly employ someone. At Absolute Care & Support we pride ourselves on being experts in this field.

You can decide how to spend the money you receive to arrange for care provision that best suits your lifestyle. If you have a social worker or care manager then contact them. If not please call us and we can give advice on how to proceed.

You might use the money to:
Employ someone directly to help with your care
(a Personal Assistant) but not a close relative living
with you
 
Buy care from a private registered care agency such as Absolute Care and Support (UK) Limited.
 
Make your own arrangements instead of using Social Services day care or respite care.
 

People who are eligible that we can help include:
People with physical disabilities
People with sensory impairment
People with learning disabilities
People with mental health problems
People with long term illness

It is also worth noting that if your needs change then you may be able to change your Direct Payment, and if you feel this method is not right for you after all you can switch to having Social Services take care of your care needs.

Further independent and free advice is available from any Local Council, please refer to our contact page for additional information.
