Invitation to Independent Direct Payment Support Service Meeting

Invitation to Independent Direct Payment Support Service Meeting

Disability Sheffield led on a project funded by Skills for Care last year to co-produce a direct payment support model for the City. Sheffield City Council (SCC) have agreed to adopt our proposals and to commission a service which we hope to be in place from next Spring. We are now in the process of putting together the business case and the service specification for such a service. A small steering group made up of people in receipt of direct payments, family carers, SCC, Sheffield CCG and Disability Sheffield have been meeting to oversee this process.

We are keen to explore our proposals with a wider group of people with an interest in such a project.

We would therefore like to invite people in receipt of a direct payment, family carers and colleagues in the council and CCG to a meeting to discuss our proposals and to help us refine what a specification for such a service will look like prior to it being commissioned in the Autumn. The meeting to discuss the proposed Independent Direct Payment Support Service for Sheffield will take place on Tuesday 11th July from 10.15am to 12.15pm at Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James’ St, Sheffield S1 2EW.

A separate meeting is being organised for Provider organisations.

View the Direct Payment Support Recommendation Report proposal which was presented to Senior Managers in March and has been agreed as a workable model, along with the Report and Recommendations submitted to Skills for Care. Please contact Emily Morton on 0114 2536750 or email emily.morton@disabilitysheffield.org.uk if you would like to attend.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
