When will my direct payments end?
If your direct payments stop, you can continue to get social care and support from social services.
The local Trust should only end your direct payments as a last resort and there are a few reasons why this could happen:
- You want them to end,
- You cannot manage them any more, even with support,
- You don’t need care and support any more, or
- You did not follow the conditions.
Additionally, the Trust can stop your payments temporarily if your condition improves for a short time.
If your direct payments stop, you can continue to get social care and support from social services and the Trust authority should try to make sure there is no delay in getting you the right services to meet your needs.
