As part of the planning process, we will talk to you about your personal budget. This is the amount of money that we have worked out it will cost to arrange your care and support.
This budget will include any amount that the council will pay towards those costs. This might range from all, to none of the total.
The personal budget will help you decide how much control you want to have over arranging your care and support, by seeing how much money is available.
Using this information, you may ask us for a direct payment so you can arrange your own care.
