What are Direct Payments?
If you are eligible for help to meet your care needs, we can give you the money instead of a service.
You can use your Direct Payment to arrange support that is right for you and your lifestyle.
Having a Direct Payment means that you can have more control over the support you need, be able to make important choices about your care, and have far greater flexibility over your support than care arranged by the council.
People in Carmarthenshire are using Direct Payments to arrange:
- Support with daily life and activities
- Support toget out and about
- Support with personal care
- Support that helps achieve personal goals
- Equipment that supports their independence
Having a Direct Payment is a personal decision that will hopefully enable you to achieve a better quality of life.
We are committed to providing people such as yourself with all of the information that you need to make a decision that is right for you.
We have an experienced Direct Payments team within the council who are there to support you with any queries or information that you need. We will endeavour to provide you with as much help and reassurance as you need, until you feel confident to manage arrangements yourself. But remember, if you need periodic support, or advice we are only a phone call away.
