direct payments are a way to pay for respite if you dont get any as this way you get to choose your childs carer and what they do ie go swimming or taking them to the park or just child minding at home while you go out for a break.

there is a difference between direct payment and direct payments the first is just having your benefit paid into the bank and the second is about choosing your own care package so if you phone the benefits agency make sure they know which one u asking about Smile
There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
