Direct Payments & Peer Support

A Direct Payment gives you more choice and control over your care by giving you the opportunity to select your own support. Our staff and volunteers are here to explain what Direct Payments are and how they can ensure you get the service you want.

DAH provides comprehensive advice and support on Direct Payments, including a peer support programme that helps people gain an understanding of the Direct Payment scheme by facilitating discussions with other disabled residents. We offer advice and support around the employment of a personal (care) assistant for both new and existing Direct Payment holders. If you are considering Direct Payments for your care and support, or you just want to find out more, reach out to us!
