Direct Payments Support

Direct Payments Support from Dewis C.I.L.

A Support Organisation for you

When a Social Services department offers a Direct Payment to one of their clients they advise that person to seek support and information from an organisation with whom they have contracted to give this support.

Dewis C.I.L. has been asked by four local authorities to provide this service – Rhondda Cynon Taf, the Vale of Glamorgan and Merthyr Tydfil.

If you live in one of these areas then Dewis C.I.L. is there to provide this support if you currently use or intend to use Direct Payments.

Seeing our 4 steps to support

Planning…. our Direct Payment Advisors will help you to make sense of the Direct Payment so that you can work out the best plan for your needs.
