Direct Payments Support Team

Sefton Carers Centre Logo

A Direct Payment is a payment that allows you to organise care services yourself, enabling you to choose the services that are appropriate to your needs as set out in your Support Plan.  Some people use the money to buy care from an agency whilst others will directly employ their own staff.

The aim of a Direct Payment is to give more choice in how services are provided to individuals who are assessed as eligible for Social Care support. For more information on eligibility click here.

By giving the individuals money in place of social care services people have a greater choice and control over their lives, and are able to make their own decisions over how their care is delivered.

Please see our Direct Payment Factsheet for more information
