Direct payments for children

Do you want more choice, flexibility or control?

A direct payment can help you manage the care you receive and make the most of the services available to you or your child.

A direct payment is money we give to you to enable you to arrange care and support for your disabled child or young person instead of us providing the service.

If you're already receiving services from us contact your social worker or community care worker to discuss direct payments further.

If you're not receiving a service from us and you believe your child or you may be eligible for support contact Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190 and ask for an assessment of need.

For more information visit our direct payments section.
