Direct Payment

A financial package is offered to persons with disability giving them the opportunity to select their own personal carer to provide a service based on conditions and tasks agreed upon between the end service user and Aġenzija Sapport. Direct Payment is to be considered as a subsidy to assist persons with disabilities to manage their selected services.

Services through Direct Payment can be accessed when requests are less than 13 hours per week.

Any requests for services more than 13 hours will fall under the Independent Community Living scheme, or Personal Assistance Fund if over 30 hours, and are approved by the Services Allocation Committee (SAC) or Personal Assistance Fund Board (PAF Board). ​​
