Where to start with Direct Payments
The first step is to contact Warrington Borough Councils Access to Social Care Team on 01925 443322 to arrange for a social worker to visit you to carry out an assessment of your needs. Alternatively, contact your existing social worker to discuss any changes, or enquire how your support is delivered. How much money you receive depends on how much support you are assessed as needing.
WDP’s Independent Living Team can support you with all aspects of recruitment, employment law, DBS Checks, contracts of employment and all matters relating to running your Direct Payments and Personal Budget so you can continue to live independently at home. Once you have had your assessment call 01925 240064 and talk to our Team.
WDP also offers a Payroll Service to assist you with paying your Personal Assistant including calculating tax and national insurance, holidays and sickness and using the prepayment card to pay your staff. The Team are available to help you with any queries you have or any further information you require regarding Direct Payments.
