How Will People Pay for Day Opportunities at EqualBase ?
We know that funding is a very important issue. Normally if someone wants to come to an activity session with EqualBase who needs additional support it is funded through an individual’s personal budget. An Individual personal budget is money that the Social Care and Health Department give to people to meet their identified needs. This can be paid by the Social Care and Health department directly or sometimes an individual can have Direct Payments and buy services themselves.
We know that sometimes the process of getting a personal budget to buy services can seem a bit complicated, but we can help to organise this and we can talk to the Social Care and Health Department if people have problems with funding their place at EqualBase.
If someone does not qualify for a personal budget they can pay for sessions themselves. Please contact us for details.
