The main part of the paper focuses on the extension of the Community Care (Direct Payments Act) to older people, drawing on research carried out by PSI and others, the recent practice guide on local authority implementation of direct payments produced by PSI and NCIL, as well as as NCIL's development work on IL and older people. It then considers the specific issues of : interpreting key direct payment criteria such as consent and 'willing and able'; models of assessment compatible with IL principles and putting in place appropriate forms of advice and support to enable older people to manage their own support arrangements.

Direct payments are a cost-effective way of delivering services to disabled people and their carers. This report explores the barriers to and successes in the delivery of direct payments, based on a project conducted in the North East of England. It concludes that a supportive local authority infrastructure, an understanding of the principles of independent living and a commitment to partnership with users are key to the success of direct payments. The authors suggest that the challenge for local authorities is twofold: to establish strategic frameworks to ensure that the systems, training, understanding, documentation and lines of communication are in place, and to actively seek partnership with users and user organisations in setting up user-led support services for direct payments.
