During Carers Week, Worcestershire Association of Carers are putting on a session for carers to come along and find out more about Personal Budgets. Personal Budgets allow you to choose what support you wish to have. A Personal Budget is the total amount you will receive for care and support, following an assessment. At this session, you will be able to learn more about what a Personal Budget is and understand more about the different ways you can receive a Personal Budget, including Direct Payments (DPs) and how these can be managed. You will also have opportunity to share your experiences and ask questions. The session will include the following:

  • A short slide presentation on Personal Budgets from a commissioning perspective.
  • A presentation and introductions from Samantha Hannon at Barrie's Bookkeeping.
  • A Question and Answer (Q&A) session with Nina from Personal Health Budgets (PHBs). 
  • Carers' questions for the panel.
  • An opportunity to provide suggestions for future sessions.
  • An overview of resources available.

Please be aware that these sessions are only available to carers who are currently registered with us. If you haven't already registered with us and are a carer please be aware that we will take your booking as an indication that you would like to be registered with us and someone will be in touch with you for further information.
