Personal budgets and Direct payments

Personal budgets

A personal budget is the amount of money we've worked out you need to pay for your care and support needs.

You can use it to:

  • arrange your own care and support using direct payments
  • authorise the council to arrange care and support for you
  • arrange some care and support yourself, and have the council arrange some for you

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