Direct Payments, Personal Health Budgets and Payroll

Direct Payment Support provides information, advice and training for people who are receiving or considering using Direct Payments in the Newcastle area.

We also assist disabled people in recruiting Personal Assistants and provide them with employer training, along with budget management support.

Similar support is available to people receiving Personal Health Budgets in the North East region.

Disability North’s finance team also provides individuals and organisations with Payroll services.



The Disability North blog will be a place for our team, our service users, our friends, professionals and members of the community to share, explore or question diverse topics of interest to our community. Please stay tuned and if you have something to say we would love to hear from you!
