Direct Payments

Help with direct payments in Wales

Cymryd Rhan can help with direct payments in Wales

Direct Payments in Wales go to someone who has made a personal choice. That is, to use the money they receive for their care or to buy their own services. So what they will buy will be those services in the Support Plan agreed between themselves and the Local Authority. Cymryd Rhan offer a free service to help with direct payments in Wales. We can help you find out if you are eligible, and help you to apply.

Moreover as a charity, we give a lot of thought to our aims, beliefs and values.

Furthermore, we are strongly committed to providing care and support which suits each and every individual. By the same token, we are just as enthusiastic to develop our services for the benefit of those who need help. And indeed Direct Payments are an important part of the story of how someone chooses to have their care delivered and by whom.

Direct Payments in Wales give people the chance to run their own lives in a way that suits them with assistance from those around them. Cymryd Rhan offers a free service to help with direct payments in Wales. This service is available to anyone who needs it.
