Direct payments

Hi, im not new to caring or healthcare but I am new to the social care system & financial side of things. I help an elderly lady with personal care and bits and pieces and have involved social work so has now been awarded 9 hours of funded care a week.
Im a self employed carer, can someone tell me how much the local authority pay an hour please as im keen she doesn’t uplift my wage but don’t feel it’s my place to ask

Hi Dawn,

each local authority sets their own rates.
