Direct Payments & Personal Budgets - Cornwall Council
Location: county wide
What are Direct Payments?
Direct Payments are payments that are paid to the parent or carer of a disabled child, or to a disabled young person up to 18 years of age. It enables them to either arrange and pay for their own support and services or to receive support from an independent sector provider.
Direct Payments will allow you to employ your own staff to provide care and support for your child or young person, instead of receiving assistance arranged from Cornwall Council.
A Direct Payment can offer greater choice and control over how you manage your child’s needs and can provide increased independence for a young disabled person.
There is no charge involved in choosing Direct Payments and your entitlement to welfare benefits will not be affected.
