What are Personal Budgets?

Personal Budgets are ways of receiving your care package from Social Services, which will allow you the flexibility to run your life in the way you choose. Instead of giving directly providing you with services, such as those listed below, they give you money instead, so that you can take control and pay for the help and support that you need.

  • Helpers from an agency who come to your home.
  • A place at a day centre.
  • Special equipment.
  • Meals on wheels.

Who can get Personal Budgets?

You must be in receipt of a ‘package of care’ from your Local Authority Social Services to get a Personal Budget. If you are under 16, your parents or the people who look after you can get a Personal Budget for you
