What is a direct payment?

Direct payments are cash payments from Shropshire Council instead of care services. They can give you much more flexibility and greater control of your support. These webpages contain information on direct payments for adults in Shropshire rather than children and families. For information on children's and families' care, take a look at our 'Children's social care and health' section.
