This is step five in process of getting adult social care support.
Planning how to use your budget
We have support planners who will meet with you and anyone else important to you. We can identify:
what you can do for yourself
what you need help with
what you want to achieve
what support is already available to you.
Your needs can be met through local support and services and we have lots of information and advice about what is available.
The end result is an agreement about how your money will be used to meet your goals, aspirations and needs.
