The local authority should only end your Self Directed Support (SDS) payments as a last resort – your SDS payments may end because:

  • You want them to end,
  • You cannot manage them anymore, even with support,
  • You don’t need care and support any more, or
  • You did not follow the conditions.

They can stop your payments temporarily if your condition improves for a short time.

If your SDS payments stop, your local authority should try to make sure there is no delay in getting you services to meet your needs.

If your SDS payments stop, your local authority should try to make sure there is no delay in getting you services to meet your needs.
