Step 5 - Setting Up Your Support

You (with help if required) organise the support you need. There are few constraints on how you use your Personal Budget as long as it is legal and keeps you safe and healthy. You don't have to use a particular service if you don't want to or if you have other ideas how to meet your needs.

After the Care and Support Needs Assessment has been completed and agreed you will be notified of your Personal Budget. Using this amount you will develop your support plan setting out how you will use your money to meet your needs.

The support plan will then be confirmed by Adult Social Care as being able to meet your identified needs.  You must then arrange the support as set out in your Support Plan.
