Personal budgets

This is where the Local Authority allocates a specific amount of money for a person’s support needs. The amount is determined by an assessment of the person’s needs and means. You will also need to agree a support plan to show how and where the money will be spent, whether you decide for the Local Authority to choose services for you or if you prefer to have direct control of the budget yourself – e.g. a direct payment.
