Direct Payments Support
Our specialist advisers provide advice and support for people who have been allocated a Personal Budget by social services or a Personal Health Budget by the NHS. We offer free initial visits for people who are interested in having their budget as a Direct Payment and we also provide a comprehensive advice and support service covering all aspects of managing a Direct Payment including recruiting and managing Personal Assistants, help with finding suitable care services, payroll services and fully managed accounts for people who are less confident with the financial aspects of their budget.
If you are interested in finding employment as a Personal Assistant, to provide care and support to people who use Direct Payments and Personal Health Budgets, why not sign up to our PA Directory. Just complete this short form and e-mail it to BANES.DP@dhibis.org.uk. Remember to tell us if you are looking for work in B&NES, Swindon or South Gloucestershire as the directory covers all three areas.
