ecdp pass

ecdp pass is a service that aims to assist disabled and older people with employing Personal Assistants (PAs), this includes both individuals and through an agency.

ecdp pass can provide a vital support system for people who want the independence that a Direct Payment / Personal Budget / cash payment can give them, but for whatever reason feel they need some support to do so.
