Use a Direct Payment to increase choice - Feb 08

Direct Payments for Equipment

Know your Rights
Did you know that if you are eligible for free equipment from Shropshire County Council, you are also eligible to a direct payment?

What is a Direct Payment?
This is the value of what you could have received free of charge.

Why would I use it?
You could offset the amount to purchase your own equipment rather than receive the statutory equipment provided.

What's the catch?
The equipment you prefer has to meet your identified need.

Sounds great! what do I do now?
Arrange an appointment at the Independent Living Centre, Telephone 01743 210 820
We are able to organise your preferred option for you.
