Financial assessment - what happens next

If you think you may meet the eligibility criteria for our services AND the criteria for financial help you should complete a supported assessment.

Complete a supported assessment

Once completed, if we agree that you are eligible for help, you will be provided with an estimated care budget. This will tell you how much we will contribute to your care and how much your own contribution will need to be.

Care and support planning

We will then develop a support plan with you. This helps you to think about how you want to use your estimated care budget to get the care and support you need.

Personal budget

A personal budget will be set once your support plan has been agreed.
