Direct payments are local council payments for people who have been assessed as needing help from social services, and who would like to arrange and pay for their own care and support services instead of receiving them directly from the local council. We have supported this scheme for many years, and offer special rates to clients running direct payments payrolls, together with flexible out of hours cover if required at no extra cost.
