Developing the use of direct payments in residential care

The Department of Health wants to identify local authorities that would like to be involved in developing the use of direct payments in residential care.

The white paper Caring for our Future: Reforming Care and Support committed to “develop, in a small number of areas, the use of direct payments for people who have chosen to live in residential care to test this approach”.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 5 October 2012.
