Personal budgets – What are they?

“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 meet 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.” Age UK
