Direct Payments Support Service

Direct Payments is a form of financial support that aims to give people more control over their own social care. It’s available for people who have additional needs.

Am I Eligible for Direct Payments?

To find out if you’re eligible for Direct Payments, you’ll need to be assessed by the Council. You may be eligible if you are:

  • An older person
  • Aged 16 and above and have a disability
  • Have a long-term illness, sensory impairment or mental health issues
  • Have parental responsibility for a child

How We Can Help

We provide free, friendly and independent support and advice for people in Peterborough who receive Direct Payments. We can also help you to setup up and manage your Direct Payments if you’re eligible for the support. To find out more, please get in touch.

Here are some things that Personal Health Budgets from the NHS has to say about our service:

‘I wish we could recommend a Managed Service as we would always recommend PCVS, you always go above and beyond and the service provided is on next level compared to the other managed providers’

‘OMG yes! All the nurses say the same. We always check who the Managed Provider is on a review and pray its PCVS and when it is we are so happy as we know we are going to get the Budgets back straight away’

‘we cannot tell you how much we all prefer PCVS and that we have all discussed how amazing the service you provide is .'
