Your funding options

Support and care service are funded in a number of different ways.

Self directed support

Increasingly, people are able to choose how their support is provided to them by having control over the individual budget spent on their support.

Council funding

Local councils also enter into block contracts with providers so they can purchase an agreed number of hours up front.

Self funding

There is no barrier to anyone paying for support or care services themselves if they have enough money. An individual contract will be set up which will include agreeing how payment will be made.
