Who can receive direct payments?

This can be made to anyone, regardless of their age who is receiving or assessed as in need of community care services.

Parents and adults with parental responsibility can receive the direct payments on behalf of a child aged of 16 or younger.

A person must be able to manage them and give their consent to receiving direct payments and be, even to do this on a day-to-day basis if they need help.

An assessment is carried out by social services to see if someone is eligible to receive direct payments.
