How can a Support Broker help me?
A support worker is someone or an
organisation who can help individuals in receipt of a personal budget to develop their support plan and help them arrange how they will spend their money.
What Does a Support Broker Do?
Offer support in the comfort of your own home, listening to your needs and desires about the services you want.
Incorporate the needs and thoughts of carers or others you want involved in your support.
A Support Broker will help you choose from an extensive directory of services to find a service that is specifically tailored to your needs.
Support you in setting up contracts and negotiating the best price with providers.
Support with contingency planning for unexpected events.
Contact you to check you are happy with the services you are receiving, once support has begun.
What are personal budgets?
A personal budget is the amount of money given to a person who is eligible for social care.
Who can get a personal budget?
Adult social care services can complete an
assessment with you and the outcome will tell you if you are eligible for a personal budget.
Contact Nottinghamshire county council on: 08449 808080 for more information.
If I am eligible for a personal budget, what happens next?
Once you know how much your personal budget is, you agree a support plan detailing how you want to spend the budget. You then choose how to pay for your support services using the following options:
Social care managed: Adult social care will pay the service providers on your behalf.
You manage the budget: You can arrange to purchase and pay for the services yourself or your carer can. If you want help to do this, you can use an independent support broker.
Mixed option: It is a mix of the above two options. Social care can manage some of the services and you can choose other services which you will manage. Brokers can help you with these decisions.
