Anyone been through one with a social worker? How long does it last and what do they ask you? Is it like a PIP assessment/examination?

From elsewhere on this site :
https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... t-payments
If you, or the person you are looking after, are assessed by the local council/trust as needing support, then you or they have a right to ask for a direct payment instead of having the support arranged by the local council/trust.
This information applies to people living in England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland.
