Everyone receiving any sort of state funded care in England and Wales is entitled to Direct Payments. This is when the Local Authority or Trust pays any funding entitlement directly into yours or an advocate’s bank account so you can spend the money where ever you like, as long as it is for care.
You can read more about care funding here.
Many Local Authorities have implemented a new contract which limits the choice of care companies to just two per client, while this is a good way of saving money for the councils it does limit the choice of the client to predominantly large national companies as opposed to smaller local organizations.
