Explain how direct payments and individual budgets support personalisation
Personal budgets are part of a new way of managing care and support called personalisation, which is designed to make sure the help you receive suits you as an individual. [ Why personalisation? Personalisation aims to give better advice and information, health and social care, prevention, and community support, to everyone regardless of their wealth or eligibility for services. How does it
work? A personal budget is an agreed amount of council money that you can use to arrange and pay for your care and support, following an assessment of your needs. You can receive it as a direct (cash) payment, through a managed account, or a mixture of the two. If you’re managing your personal budget yourself as a direct payment, you can only spend the money on services or equipment that meets your assessed needs, but you can choose the ones that best suit you and your lifestyle. The agreed amount must be adequate to meet your eligible needs. ]
