Support planning 

Some accommodation options have a core support offer which usually includes night time support and the management of any building issues e.g. smoke detector tests, fire drills etc.

Once you’ve bought the core support it’s up to you how you spend the rest of your personal budget, you may choose more one to one support with the same provider or a different provider. 

Other organisations involved in your support might be:

  • Personal assistants
  • District or learning disability nurses
  • Voluntary organisations
  • Psychologist or Occupational Therapist
