Is Direct Payments means-tested?

Yes. If you choose to receive Direct Payments instead of services, you will be charged the same as you would be for equivalent services if provided or arranged by Social Services. The amount of this charge will be taken out of the Direct Payment you receive, so you will need to pay the amount of your charge into the Direct Payments account so that there will be enough there to pay for the services you need.

Social Services (or Local Authority-equivalent) will calculate whether you will be required to make a financial contribution towards your support service, and if so, how much.
