How Direct Payments have helped me…


About me…

  • My name is Kallum Garbett

  • I am 18 years old and I live at home with my Mom

    and Dad

  • I have a learning disability and Autism

  • I go to the Glasshouse College

  • I have learned how to make

    and decorate glass

  • I am very interested in

    local history

  • I need support

    with lots of things...


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


Direct payments help with some of my support...


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
