"The Kent Card is a revolutionary system enabling people to use their direct payments to pay for their Adult Social Care Services.
Kent County Council, in partnership with The Royal Bank of Scotland, have developed this Visa preloaded card to allow users to pay for their services via Chip and Pin, over the phone and on the internet."
Direct payment empowerment - great idea! (Should we call this 'empayerment*' ?!)
