Direct payments and budget

Direct payments and budget

There are a growing number of clients attending the Centre that are in receipt of Individual Budgets which allows them choice in the activities that they are involved in throughout their life.  By having an individual budget clients purchase their own placement at the Centre instead of the funding coming directly from Social Services. 

Clients are issued a contract prior to commencement of their placement and then invoices are sent out to them at the end of each month.  The usual termination period applies to clients with individual budgets as to those people accessing the Centre through the Social Service route.
