Managing your support budget
Once you know your support budget and the agreed outcomes it will deliver, there are a number of ways you can manage your support.
You can choose:
- to have the Council organise your support for you within the levels of your budget and make all the payments. We call this a Virtual Budget. Any contribution you make towards the cost of your support package is paid to the Council.
- to organise your support yourself, manage your budget and make all the payments yourself. We call this a Cash Individual Budget.
- someone else to organise your support for you, manage your budget and make all the payments on your behalf. We call this an Individual Service Fund.
