Personal budgets

10 May 2018

What is a personal budget?

Personal budget is the amount of money we have worked out you need to pay for your care and support needs.

How is it used?

There are 3 ways you can take a personal budget, they are:

  • we will spend your personal budget and arrange your care and support 

  • you will arrange your own care and support using a direct payment

  • a combination of both us arranging your care and support, and you arranging your own care and support

Your social worker will go through this with you when you agree your care and support plan.
