A Direct Payment is a payment that allows you to organise care services yourself, enabling you to choose the services that are appropriate.

Some people use the money to buy care from an agency whilst others will directly employ their own staff.

The Sefton Direct Payments Team are based at Sefton Carers Centre, 27-37 South Road, Waterloo, L22 5PE, and offer a range of support services to enable people to manage a direct payment.

The aim of a Direct Payment is to give more choice in how services are provided to individuals who are assessed as eligible for Social Care support.
