Hello everyone x hope that you are all as well as you can be.
just thought id put this up as really interested to hear of your veiws on the newish social services personal budgets.
ive been set up with one now but took a long time to sort it out with the social serrvices and had lopts of trouble with them.
but now im given so much per week to use onh things which have been agreed with my social worker in my care plan. ( any of this sound alien to any of you just feel free to ask about it as it did to me too at first)
with it i wanted a better quality of life and to use it for options i wouldnt have had without it.
like... getting my first passport , going out on day trips, paying for my gym sessions,. camera and equipment , short breaks ect so it really is nice to be able to do this as i cant pay for an of it myself and has helped me lots so far.
so thats my story, now tell me yours if you have one, would like one, never gheard of personal budgets, having problems with yours or not getting what youd like.
there are lots of things to iron out on them and i know people who should be tiold about them and could get one arnt so i want to help and see how it is for any of you. thankyou take care and im looking forward to reading your replys x caz
