how to go about getting direct payments;

I just wondered if direct payments could be used to cover the cost of Rory's football club which he goes to weekly and is £22.50 for 5 sessions, as Rory is now on DLA middle care rate and lower mobility rate....how do I go about this????

Marion, I'm not really sure

Marion, I'm not really sure if they would cover this, it's totally dependent on where you live and how your local council iterpretate things!

I know some councils namely Edinburgh City who covered loads of stuff - laundry equipment and social stuff but here it was a no go, they would only support direct care and respite.

Speak to the social worker and give it a go, try the 'it would give me respite' tack!

It's got to be worth a shot!
