Share your experience with others new to direct payments


The Nationwide Networking Group was first started on our website back in 2005. We asked our service users across England and Wales if they would like to offer their contact details so people who were considering a direct payment may contact them for information and advice.

We are pleased that the group has grown and we have representatives from many different areas.

If you are interested in joining the Nationwide Networking Group, please go to the green 'Become a Member' box on the right hand side of this page.  If you would prefer, you can contact our Head Office on 02476 511611 or call your local Penderels Trust office for further information.

The people below are happy to be contacted to discuss any issues around receiving a direct payment.
