Direct Payments

We had an update meeting about Jacob’s direct payments earlier today.
There are a number of different ways direct payments can be used such as:

>Help with household tasks to free up your time to look after your child

>To access shortbreaks to provide respite for the whole family

>To buy specific equipment for your child

>Employing a personal assistant or agency to provide support with your child’s personal care

>To help your child access leisure facilities or attend a particular activity

These are only a few of the many options available to you under direct payments.

Please note: This is a Kent specific site, but gives a useful insight about Direct Payments.
