Cash Payments (also called Direct Payments)
Cash Payments, also called Direct Payments, are available to people who are eligible for a Personal Budget.
Cash Payments give people the most flexibility and choice in how they are supported, because the money is paid directly to them. You can read more about the different ways to manage personal budget money here.
The important thing to remember with a Cash Payment is that the money is paid to you (or to someone you choose to help you) and that you are responsible for the relationship and contract with your support providers.
