Take Control is an agency helps people who receive support services to explore the four option within Self-Directed Support, to create a tailored package of care that suits the client, and not just the care provider.
There are four Self-Directed Support options: 1: Take a Direct Payment from the Council and use it to arrange your own care package 2: Arrange your own care package, but arrange for the Council to pay for it. 3: Allow the Council to arrange your Care Package and also to pay for it. 4: A mix of the other three options. Take Control can help you to find and hire a Personal Assistant, to support you with setting up payroll, holiday cover, insurance and all the other things that an employer has to do.
