Everyone on self-directed support will have a personal budget. Self-directed support is a new way of providing social care that helps people to take control of their own support. Most local authorities in England and Wales are now working towards self-directed support as the approach for everyone needing social care support.

Having a personal budget means you will:

  • Know how much money is available to you to meet your social care needs
  • Have a support plan which says what outcomes you want to achieve with that funding
  • Be able to choose and control how and when your budget is spent

Some people choose to manage their personal budget as a direct payment. However, you can have a personal budget even if you don't want to manage a direct payment. Your personal budget can be managed by a third party, a Trust or your local authority if you prefer.

For more information on personal budgets and self-directed support in your area, refer to your local authority website or visit www.in-control.org.uk for more general information and background.
