Disability Cornwall
Personal Budgets Support Services


From April 2011 everyone receiving social care support will get a personal budget at the start of their service or following their review. You can choose how to spend your personal budget providing it meets your eligible social care needs. You can choose to have the money through a direct payment and organise support yourself, have the Council arrange your support, or choose a mixture of these arrangements.

A personal budget is an opportunity to manage your own support through a direct payment. This will enable you to have increased choice and control over your own life. Should you decide to manage your own budget, we can give you advice and support.


Our professional services will assist you with the technical aspects of managing your budget such as: 

  •  Payroll and Employer Support
  •  Managed Accounts
  •  PA Register
