independence for all

The following is a site for disabled people wanting to find out about DIRECT PAYMENTS the way it works it is run by the disabled and answers lots off questions.
i hope it is ok to post this and good luck to you all in your quest for independence


  • Direct payments is a brilliant scheme.
    You can often get direct payments to replace eg any council homecare you get, its much more flexible than homecare and as it is a lot cheaper, you may get more help than otherwise.
    In my area a charity called independant living takes care of all the paperwork.
    worth asking about, if you have a social worker they should be able to discuss it with you.
