Best Practice in Direct Payments Support

Added on

Best Practice in Direct Payment Support: A guide for commissioners was originally funded by the London Joint Improvement Partnership and describes how to commission really good direct payments support by showcasing examples of innovative practice. It provides a practical toolkit to benchmark against best practice, identify gaps and build a shared view with local people and providers of how to develop the support needed to make DPs an attractive option for more people. The revised version includes new pointers on safeguarding and increased emphasis on the wide variety of ways DPs can be used beyond securing personal assistants, including to access mainstream services and create microenterprises.
