What is a care and support plan?

If you are eligible for help, we will work with you to develop a care and support plan.

Your care and support plan will set out how you can get the right level of care and support so that you can do the things that are important to you.

We will try to do this through the support of your friends and family or services in your local community wherever possible and will give you advice about other kinds of support available locally that can help you, such as community groups and voluntary organisations.

If you are eligible for help from us to pay towards the costs of your care and support we will give you a personal budget.

This is means-tested so you may have to contribute towards the cost. Your personal budget will confirm the amount you will need to contribute and how much we will pay.
