Personal Budgets from Adult Social Care, Brokerage
If you like the idea of having more choice but don’t like the idea of being an employer and managing the money and the other responsibilities that come with it you could approach an agency to provide you with options for support.
There agencies that other people in Hackney already use because they have been approved by Hackney social care services.
The aim of these services is to enable clients to continue to live independently in their own home and in their local community and to be in control of their own support at home.
Once clients have chosen their own personal carer(s) some of the agencies can train the selected personal carer(s) to meet your specific needs. They can sought out payments to carers and act as the legal employer on behalf of the person receiving the care/support.
To find out more about these agencies do a search under brokerage on the websites in the useful links section at the bottom of this page or speak to the Information and assessment team or your social worker www.hackney.gov.uk/sw-community-social-work.htm
