Your responsibilities

You must:

  • Be willing to receive direct payments and only spend the money on services to meet your assessed needs
  • Keep records of how the money is spent and agree for these to be checked by the Council
  • Follow good employer practice (if you choose to employ your own carer)

Support and advice is available in all aspects of your responsibilities.
