SEND and You – Personal Budgets & The Local Offer

Important information from SEND and You on Personal Budgets.

Local authorities must provide information on Personal Budgets as part of the Local Offer. This should include a policy on Personal Budgets that sets out a description of the services across education, health and social care that currently lend themselves to the use of Personal Budgets, how that funding will be made available, and clear and simple statements of eligibility criteria and the decision-making processes (Code of Practice paragraph 9.96).
