Direct Payments/Personal Budgets

What does it do?

A direct payment is the sum of money that Coventry City Council will pay directly to you, so you can buy and arrange your own care and
support, instead of the Council arranging it for you. Direct payments are part of the Government's Personalisation agenda,
which puts you central to the support you receive, helping you live as independently as possible and giving you more choice and control.

Who it is for?

People who are assessed as needing support

Where it is available?

Local service (Coventry).

How to access or apply for it:

For queries relating to managing your direct payment account and your financial records, please contact the direct payment finance team
on 024 7683 3362. The website also has more information.

What to expect then:

The Council will provide information and advice.
