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


Direct payments help with some of my support
