Personal Budgets – Your Links to Resources
All parents whose child has an EHC plan, or has been assessed as needing a plan, are entitled to request a personal budget. The Department for Education has funded projects to assist parents, children and young people, and practitioners when making decisions about personal budgets. KIDS charity were funded to produce a suite of resources called Making it Personal.
The aim of Making it Personal 2 was to help prepare providers for personal budgets and informed families of opportunities and challenges these could bring. The link contains further access to publications for providers, families, commissioners and Family Information Services.
Making it Personal 3 saw KIDS working with young people’s engagement Groups from across the country to develop information on what is important for young disabled people when making decisions that affects them, and how personal budgets can be used in innovative ways to help them achieve their aspirations for the future. The young people helped to make this video to explain about personal budgets and what they can be used for.
