Real DPO Independent Living Support
We support anyone who is in receipt of a Direct Payment from Tower Hamlets Council.
If you receive social care from the council, you can get money from the council to pay for it. This money is called a Direct Payment.
Our service can help you work out how to spend your Direct Payment, so you get support how and when you want it and from the people you choose.
You can choose support to help you get ready for the day, to help you get out and about more often, or some support to go to college.
You may choose to employ your own worker (Personal Assistant). If you choose this, we can help you to recruit the right person and understand your responsibilities as an employer.
You may choose to pay a care agency, day centre or other provider. We can help you find the one that is right for you.
You can use your Direct Payment to get support from the council, or get new support from somewhere else, or you can choose a bit of both.
The important thing is that the support you choose gives you the help you and the council have agreed you need.
The council pays us to help you, so this service is free.
