Your personal budget

Council-managed budgets

A council-managed budget is where we manage your personal budget for you and arrange your support. We can do this if you:

  • want to use services provided by us
  • do not want to manage the money yourself
  • cannot consent to receive direct payments
  • do not have an 'authorised person' to help you

You can use the money for:

  • care provided in your home by an independent provider
  • day care provided by an independent provider, or by us
  • residential or nursing home respite care
  • transport
  • outreach support, such as practical support in your home
