What is a Personalised Budget?
A Personalised Budget allows you to control what type of support that meets your personal need, rather than social services wholly deciding what support is best for you,
You will be assessed as to how many hours of support you require each week and will be given an allowance to pay for the support services. The system that allows you to do this is called Self Directed Support.
Why could Self Directed Support be better for you?
You can make choices in:
- Who will support you and how you will be supported.
- Control over your support budget.
- Planning your support package.
How do you get a Personalised Budget?
- Contact your Social Worker or your local Social Services
- Discuss and agree with them what your support requirements are.
- A Care Plan will be written taking into account your own wishes
- You will be given a number of support hours based upon the plan.
- An appropriate hourly rate will be allocated to fund the Care Plan. You can also top this up with an added contribution from yourself if you wish.
Who Can Advise Me?
- Your local Social Services staff.
- Community Groups and family.
