We're doing a survey about direct payment support services (DPSS). It’s based on the work we’ve done over the last year about what support services do. Members told us that often DPSSs were doing tasks that they weren't paid for in order to make the system work for the individual. Or that support services were being prevented from doing vital tasks by the nature of their contract.
Anyone who knows about a direct payment support service can complete it. You do not have to work in one - you just need to know about it.
Please complete it if you can and pass on to colleagues in neighbouring areas. The more responses we get the more useful it will be. It should take about 10 minutes.
A survey summary will be presented at a future Forum meeting.
Thanks very much!
