Q & A - Adult Social Care & Direct Payments

During the Coronavirus pandemic, family carers had lots of questions about how Direct Payments could be used. Key professionals from Oxfordshire County Council’s Adult Social Care Team joined OxFSN for a Q & A session where family carers were able to get some of their questions answered.

Hampshire sent a circular to everyone on DP’s saying that everyone would receive their payments as normal, the government told LA’s to be flexible. My son’s budget went down £300-400!

I thought they were supposed to give 10% extra due to the panademic era? Maybe only some councils adopted it?
