Direct Payments Policy

Borough of Poole, Adult Social Care is required to make Direct Payments to people who request to receive one to meet some, or all, of their eligible care and support needs. Direct payments provide independence, choice and control by enabling people to commission their own care and support in order to meet their eligible needs.

The purpose of this policy is to provide a framework for the use of Direct Payments which maximises choice, enhances the person’s opportunities to live independently, champions their wellbeing, and enables carers to continue in their caring role.
