Reviewing your needs

Reviewing your needs

Because your personal budget is based on your needs, your budget will not change unless you have a review of your needs.

The Department of Adult Social Services will review with you both yours and your carer’s support plan regularly to make sure everything is going well and that you have enough money to pay for the support you need. Either you, your carer or the Council can call a review at any time.

The Department knows that your needs change and so will re-assess your needs at each review point which may affect the amount of your personal budget.

The Department will want to know whether the outcomes you set out in your support plan are being achieved and how we can best spend your personal budget to enhance your quality of life.
