Direct Payments support

If you qualify for help with your care needs from your Local Authority (Council) you can ask to receive Direct Payments.

“A Direct Payment is funding from your local authority that provides choice and control over how disabled people receive support in their own home or in the community. The funding can be used to employ the people you want to support you, to purchase a service from a care provider, equipment or some other way you choose to meet your support needs.”

As part of your Direct Payment budget you will receive a payment for all or some of the costs for a support agency to help you manage your Direct Payment. WECIL is one of these support agencies.
