If your needs are high or complex you may be entitled to social funding from the County Council, how ever your needs will need to be assessed as eligible.
This can be paid as:

  • Direct payment to you or an appointed suitable person to manage.

  • Want you to use council services
  • Do not want to manage the money yourself
  • Can not consent to receive direct payments because you are unable to, make decisions for yourself and there is not a suitable person who can manager the personal budget on your behalf.
