Our care and support services can be funded in many different ways:

Local Authorities:

You may be entitled to social care funding support, subject to your financial circumstances. For more information, you can contact us on, 0116 225 1351 or contact your local social services who can advise you further.

If you’ve already been assessed by your local council, you are likely to be allocated a Personal Budget, this can be paid in the form of Direct Payments, Individual Service Funds (ISFs), or Individual Budgets.

Often, the Local Authority doesn’t provide full funding that covers everything that you wish to include in your care plan but only covers the basic essentials you need. You may wish to add additional elements to your care plan and pay for some extras yourself.

What are Individual Service Funds (ISFs)?

An individual service fund (ISF), is for those who can’t, or do not wish to manage the Personal Budget you have been allocated with to pay for care and support services. A service provider can be chosen to help you sort out all the payments and budgeting. Your chosen service provider will then hold your personal budget on your behalf, and you are still in control of how this is spent.

What is a Personal Budget?

A Personal Budget is granted to those who have been assessed by your local council, depending on their financial circumstances. Depending on your circumstances, or choice, you may receive your Personal Budget either as Direct Payments or as an Individual Service Fund (ISF).

What are Direct Payments?

Direct Payments are a Government initiative allowing individuals who have been assessed and require social services to purchase their own care and support and will be allocated a personal budget. To receive a direct payment, you need to contact your council. They will meet with you to find out what help you need. This is called an assessment. The assessment will determine whether you need care service and if you’ll be eligible for funding. If you are eligible, the council will allocate you a personal budget.

Can I get a direct payment?

What can I use my direct payment for?

You can use a direct payment to pay for services, equipment, or activities that meet your social care needs. You can buy these from organisations or individuals.

Funding your own care:

If you have over £23,250 in your savings account, you may need to fund your own care and support. If this is the case, we can create a bespoke care and support plan where you can choose your chosen hours and can work around that.

As well as that, we will produce and give regular invoice to keep up with all the payments and make it easier for you by creating a direct debit or an online payment plan.
