Self Direct Support

Choosing Self Direct Support

If you have been assessed as needing help from your local authority and would prefer to choose your own care provider, you can make a request forĀ self direct support payments.

Direct payments (sometimes referred to as self directed support) are designed to promote independence and choice for individuals receiving care. They are cash payments made to you directly from your local authority.

If you are currently receiving a care package through your local authority you can still change to direct payments and choose your provider.

Family Circle Care can support you if you wish to organise your funding through the direct payment scheme.

For more informationĀ  please call us on 0131 554 9500 to speak to one of our managers.
