i asked a while back for advice about direct payment for my three who have autism, got a phone call to say yes all three could have it 8 hours each per month, as a starting point it seems ok but 2 hours a week each isnt really much, anyone else get it and what sort of hours?

I do. I now get 10 hours a week but it started as 2.5 hrs and I was just happy to get in the system. It has worked as its gone up each year, this is our 3rd year. Its quite a lot of paperwork but, once you get it off to a fine art, its OK and well worth it. Great news!
