Direct Payments for Short Breaks

Short breaks

Direct Payments allow parents/carers to arrange care and services themselves, instead of receiving them directly from the Local Authority. The Short Breaks Panel approves Direct Payments for families who seek to employ a Personal Assistant (PA), or use the Direct Payment to fund a suitable agency/provider who provide Short Breaks.

To access Direct Payments for Short Breaks, you will need to follow the same process as accessing Targeted Short Breaks. See our Direct Payments website to find out more information.
