Direct Payments Market Shaping

Closed 30 Apr 2022

Opened 18 Mar 2022


We want to ensure that there is a vibrant, diverse and responsive market for people who receive a Direct Payment to purchase care and support to meet their needs. 

This survey is the first step to find out more about the services and products people are currently purchasing with their Direct Payment and to find out what services or support options are missing in Sheffield, or not readily available for people to purchase and access. 

By completing this survey, you will help us to better understand how the market for Direct Payments is operating at the moment and help inform our plans going forward to shape and develop an effective market for Direct Payment recipients. 

At the end of the survey we are asking for people who use Direct Payments and/or their family carers or representatives whether they are interested in supporting the Council and our partners to shape and develop the market.
