Personal budgets are part of a way of managing care and support called personalisation, which is designed to make sure the help you receive suits you as an individual. Every person assessed as having eligible needs now has a personal budget.
What is personalisation?
Personalisation aims to ensure that the care and support each person gets is matched to their needs and wishes. It also makes sure that everyone who needs information and advice about social care gets it, regardless of their wealth or eligibility for services.
Personal budgets are a key part of personalisation, because they give you more control over your care and support.
