4. Join a direct payments support group

Independent Living East Sussex is a support group which meets once a month. It is run by volunteers who are clients, carers and personal assistants and receive direct payments themselves or on behalf of someone else.

It's a forum where you can share your experiences of receiving direct payments, get support from people who understand your situation and find solutions to any problems you are having. Often guest speakers will also come along to give presentations about relevant topics.
