Direct Payments/Personal Budgets

Direct Payments are payments made to people who need support (following a community care assessment), and Personal Budgets (following a health professionals assessment), enabling individuals to buy their own care or support services.

The Federation is a specialist mental health service provider accredited with Derbyshire County Council and we have over 30 years of providing one-to-one support for clients with mental ill health.

We aim to be flexible so as to provide the specific support that the client wants, and will work with adult social care and mental health teams to deliver support plans tailored to individual client need. Services can include access to services (such as the gym), with managing activities of daily living, and with living with mental health conditions such as anxiety or obsessional difficulties.

Private Contracts

For clients who want to do more than their Direct Payments package will fund, or who cannot obtain statutory funding for support, we can make separate arrangements for private payment for services.

For Telephone Support, we can offer a private contract service for when entitlement to our funded service has ceased.
