Can anyone please tell me what happens during social services assessments for eligibility for direct payments? What sorts of questions do they ask? My DD is statemented and I was advised about direct payments by her 1:1 TA at nursery.

I have one coming up next week and I dont like to be ill prepared.

Also what reasons can they give for refusing direct payments... I live in Greenwich.

thank you.
