Direct Payments

Are you looking after someone? Perhaps you need a little help? Maybe things have changed at home?

Direct Payments from Social Services are payments made to you or the person you are looking after so that you can buy care services for yourself. You can choose who you want to provide that service. If you are already getting support from Social Services you can ask for Direct Payments instead. This will give you a greater choice of services as well as greater flexibility of when the service is provided.

How do you get Direct Payments? The decision to award Direct Payments comes after an assessment from Social Services, this could be: 

  • A Community Care Assessment for the person you are looking after
  • A Carer's Assessment for yourself
This is where we at Jewel Home Support can help you. We are here to give help and advice at all stages to ensure you get the quality and flexibility of service you deserve.
