Direct Payments

If you would like to take control of your support service instead of having it arranged for you, then direct payments may be for you. You can choose to take all or part of your personal budget to manage for yourself and arrange your own care services. The money you choose to use from your personal budget is called a direct payment.

Direct Payments Payroll Service

Choices and Rights have a direct payment support scheme for disabled people and another for families of disabled children. Both of these schemes are currently funded on a service level agreement with Hull City Council. 

As part of the direct payment support scheme, Choices and Rights have developed and manage a database of potential PA’s. There are approximately 400 potential PA’s on the database. We have a fully functionable PA Database website where all vacancies are posted alongside our social media channels. 

Your social worker can put you in contact with Choices and Rights as you may need their support to employ a PA. They can help you find a PA if you don’t already have someone in mind as well as advise you on what you need to do as an employer. 

Be clear with your PA what you want them to do for you. You are the best person to let them know how you want them to support you - this is where your support plan is helpful.
