Direct payments
If you are eligible for support from social services you can take your personal budget (the money to pay for the support your need) as a direct payment. This means that the money will be paid to you to arrange your own support. You may have to pay towards some of the cost for your care. You can find more details about direct payments on the website.

Care Support arranged by Social Services
If you are not able to arrange your own care support and you do not have someone you trust to help you, Social Services can carry out an assessment of your needs and arrange the support you need. You may have to pay towards the cost of this care. For more details please contact the Access Service on 0207 527 2299 or at access.service@islington.gov.uk.  You can get also find more information about assessments on our webpages.

For more information about ways to arrange, pay for and manage your own carer or personal assistant to provide care support in your own home see our Paid Carers and personal assistance advice and guidance page.
