Direct payments

A specialist payroll service to support independent living.

What is direct payment?

The aim of a Direct Payment within the care system is to give many individuals who are assessed eligible for Adult Social Care support more flexibility in determining how services are provided.

Eligible individuals will receive money in lieu of social care services. They then have greater choice and control over their lives, and are able to make their own decisions about how their care is delivered.

The money is provided so that the individual can arrange services or support for themselves instead of having services provided or arranged by Adult Social Care.
The Government recognises that most people prefer to live independently in their own homes and Direct Payments are a good way to help support them to do so.
