What are direct payments?

Direct payments are paid directly to you so you can arrange the services you need. They’re an alternative to social care services provided by your local council.

Will I qualify for benefits?

If you're disabled, you may qualify for certain welfare benefits like Personal Independence Payment.

If your child is disabled, he or she may qualify for Disability Living Allowance.

Depending on your circumstances, you might have an entitlement to benefits such as Carer’s Allowance, additional premiums or Child Tax Credits.
