If you are due to/have recently had a Carer’s Review from Social Care – to assess your needs in relation to your caring role and if you are assessed as eligible for support you should have been offered the choice of a Direct Payment or a commissioned service.
We have had numerous calls in relation to Direct Payments as there appears to be confusion over how to access this and how the money can be spent to meet your needs.
The Council have a website page with information in relation to Direct Payments
For details of Approved Providers for Direct Payments support (agencies that will help you manage a Direct Payment, for a fee)
Please note that ‘I Decide’ has recently withdrawn their offer of service under this agreement.
