Paying for support
This page is designed to offer advice on the different ways in which support can be paid for.
Pay for support privately
Some clients or their families may wish to pay for their own support in full or top up the amount that social services award them. Vive UK Social Care can provide this support at a range of charges depending on the support required.
Some clients may be eligible to receive money from the government called ‘direct payment’. This is to allow clients the choice of which care provider they wish to use and they type of support they wish to receive.
Independent Living Funds
Direct payments will be changing to become part of a new system called ‘personal budgets’. A personal budget will let you pay for a wide choice of support services you need – either council or non-council services. For more information about personal budgets call 0113 214 6210
There are many more ways in which your support can be helped financially. You can contact your local council to find out more information
