The DP and PA Support Hub will audit your direct payment from time to time, with the first usually being within three months of the start of the first payment. This is to ensure that you feel supported in the running of the direct payment account and that the funds are being used in line with your support plan.
You will be given information on what records and paperwork you need to keep as part of your Direct Payment when it is set up.
We will send you a full explanation of how we have audited your direct payment. Following the audit, any surplus funds or funds that have not been used in accordance with your support plan will need to be repaid.
Your support plan will also be reviewed as a whole every twelve months, unless you notify adult social care that your needs have changed.
