Direct Payments for Adult Social Care

The Auditor General for Wales published a report in April 2022 which draws on Audit Wales’ review of Direct Payments for Adult Social Care. 


Audit Wales reported that Direct Payments are beneficial in encouraging people’s independence, however there are variations in the ways in which they are managed across Local Authorities, leading to inconsistencies in services and a difficulty in assessing overall value for money.


The Public Accounts and Public Administration Committee will consider this report in Summer 2022.
