How to apply for direct payments

Choose and buy the services you need

If you or someone you care for gets help from social services, you can apply for direct payments. These let you choose and buy the services you need yourself, instead of getting them from your council.


A link to the government website regarding Direct Payments can be found at here.


Home Care Direct can also provide assistance regarding direct payments and personal budgets for people living in Portsmouth. For further information please click here.
