Description

Oldham Council are seeking interest from organisations who would be interested in providing a brokerage provision to service users who are in receipt of a Direct Payment (DP). As part of Oldham’s person-centred approach to care and support and, in line with the Care Act 2014 and SEND Code of Practice 2014, all those who are eligible for care and support from the council will be allocated a personal budget and encouraged to take up a direct (cash) payment rather than having a package of care and support services arranged for them. Direct Payments enable children/young people and adults with social care needs to have more choice and control over the support they receive. Many choose to employ Personal Assistants to give them maximum control and flexibility to meet their desired outcomes, some are unable to confidently manage these or other service arrangements and look to a Broker to help them manage their direct payment, set up their services and manage any related employment processes.
