Services in Birmingham
If you have been referred for a direct payment for the first time, your social worker will arrange for your direct payment package to be set up and established in a way that is appropriate depending on whether you choose to use personal assistants from a care agency or you are going to employ your own personal assistant(s).
Once your direct payment package is established, there are a number of additional services that you may choose to purchase to make managing your direct payment even easier.
There is a cost associated with each service; we will help you to work out how you can use your direct payment to fund the service(s) you require.
The Better Lives Alliance is a new, young, and energetic alliance of Personal Assistants (PAs) , Individual Employees and others interested in the role of Personal Assistant. This group wants to give PAs a chance to join together, share experiences and ideas to make lives better for them and the people they support. It is a new group, so if you are a PA or thinking about becoming a PA, why not join in and help create something new and worthwhile? For more information, please download the flyer at the bottom of this page, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their Facebook page Better Lives Alliance https://www.facebook.com/groups/501999287075766/
