About Direct Payments
Direct Payments are an option for Social Care service users in Cumbria, which aims to encourage greater independence by offering choice in the way services are arranged and more control over how services are provided. Direct Payments give eligible service users the option of receiving regular payments from Cumbria’s Adult Social Care or Children’s Services, which can be used to organise care services in the way that service users choose.
