Personal Independence Payment

Having control of your own money is one of the most important features of an independent adult life.


From banking and benefits to filling in forms and paying the bills, help is available from a variety of organisations.

Direct payments

Under the direct payments scheme, people who are entitled to help from adult social services can get money from the council so that they can arrange and pay for their own care, rather than having a service provided to them.

Direct payment support in our county is provided by Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living. See our article for more information.
