Direct payments guidance


If a social care assessment determines that you need care services or support, you have a right to ask for a Direct Payment instead of having a service arranged by St Helens Borough Council.

The aim of a Direct Payment is to give more flexibility in how services are provided to people who are assessed as eligible for social care support.

This guidance will assist you in operating your Direct Payments account and details what you can and cannot spend this money on.
