Personalisation and Personal Budgets

Personalisation is a way of working that gives people and their carers more control, choice and flexibility over how they plan and manage their social care support. If you qualify for social care services then you can gain support in this way.

This approach is based on people knowing how much money is likely to be available to plan their support at an early stage. It puts people at the centre of planning how they want their own support to work and makes it possible to be creative in finding ways to gain support using a Personal Budget to fund it.

Personal Budgets are available in addition to any money that you may receive, or qualify for, such as Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance or other benefits. Depending on your income you may need to contribute to the cost of your support.
