If you have been assessed by Lambeth Adults’ and Community Services [Social Services] as needing community care services to assist you to remain independent, you can choose to receive money from them, as a Direct Payment, to arrange your own services instead of having them provided or arranged for you by the Council. There are also other options to use Personal Budgets to give you more choice in how your care and support is provided. We also provide advice and support to people who are funding their own care and support ("self-funders").
You can find more information about Direct Payments and how they work in Lambeth by clicking on the direct payments resources link on the left to see factsheets and other information and by visiting Lambeth Council’s Direct Payments webpage
