Peterborough City Council - Direct Payments PE1

Sector: Social care

Issue: Direct Payments

A Direct Payment is where people receive money directly from us to pay for their own care. Since the transfer of services from the NHS we have put in place new procedures to ensure best and most appropriate use of Direct Payments. This has enabled us to provide better guidance to those needing care and carers on how to spend the payment. The change in procedures has also allowed us to recover payments that were not spent.
