Your entitlement to personal budgets
With the implementation of the Care Act, there is now a duty upon councils to produce a care and support plan and offer a personal budget following an assessment to ensure that disabled people and carers’ needs are adequately met. For the first time in law, local authorities have a legal obligation to offer personal budgets and conduct a care and support planning that were previously stated only in guidance as part of the Personalization agenda. This is an important change in the personalizing care and support process as it enables people to have maximum and full control over how their needs are met.
However why not everybody can receive personal budget ?
