Direct Payments support group for North Tyneside carers and parents

 

 

 

 

Direct Payments are made to people who have been assessed as having social care needs and are eligible for Council-funded support. Instead of the Council arranging services for you, they will pay money into a pre-paid current account for you to buy the support you need in the way that you choose.

Aims of the Support Group

  • To offer peer support and information about the benefits of Direct Payments or the process associated with it
  • To provide a platform for people to share their own experiences or represent the views of the wider community
  • To ensure that the service reflects the needs of the people who use them
  • Enable people to share good practice and raise areas of concern
  • Give ideas and suggestions on how services could be improved

Meetings are held quarterly at the Linskill Centre, Linskill Terrace, North Shields NE30 2AY between 10.30am and 12 noon.
