how i got a direct payment
How I got a Direct Payment
  • My Social Worker, Daniel did an assessment, finding

out what I need support with

  • We agreed what Mom and Dad could help with
  • He worked out how much money I could have to meet the

rest of my needs

  • We agreed a plan – who would help with what
  • Dad and I opened a Building Society account and the money gets paid in
  • We employed Abi, my Personal Assistant (she is now self employed)
  • Mom and Dad show the council how we spend the money
  • Daniel visits to see if we are getting on OK and how the Direct Payment has

benefited me

My Personal Assistant, Abi
  • I see Abi on Monday evenings and in the college holidays
  • We go to museums, go for walks, go swimming, do cooking and visit friends
  • Abi supports me with: budgeting and using money, getting around on the bus, keeping safe, doing my laundry  and reassures me if I get anxious or worried
  • Abi is supporting me to go on holiday in the summer 
  • Abi has helped me overcome my fear of dogs

How I have benefited…
  • Having a Direct Payment has helped me to:
  • Choose the person who supports me
  • Get the support when I need it
  • Keep occupied and do the activities that I enjoy
  • Learn new skills and keep safe
  • The Direct Payment pays for some of my support but my family, friends and tutors at college are also an important part of my circle of support
  • Thank you
