Direct Payments

’Your life in your hands’

Do you want to be in charge of your own life and in control of your own care package? 

Would you like to choose who delivers your care / support at a time that is convenient with you? 

If you’ve answered yes to these questions; Direct Payments could be the answer for you. 

Direct Payments promote choice; voice, control and flexibility by enabling and empowering individuals to meet their well-being outcomes as agreed in the Individual Assessment. The main objective is for individuals to be able to remain as independent, with or without support, to live in their own homes, be fully involved in family and community life, and to engage in work, education and leisure when and where possible in order to live the life they want to lead. 

The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 introduced changes to how Direct Payments can be used including residential care and purchasing a service from a Local Authority. Direct Payments should always be considered when deciding how to meet an individual’s well-being outcomes and should always be discussed at the point of assessment and or review.
