In line with government policy, RF is working with Commissioners across the country to run pilot services around self-directed support and individual budgets. The ‘Putting People First’ agenda reflects the core values RF has put into practice since it was founded. Self-directed support is a natural development of what RF already does in all its different Services. It’s about truly listening to individuals and acting on their ideas of what is important to them.
West Sussex and Rotherham Community Based Services are just two examples of RF leading the way with self-directed support packages and individual direct payments.
Please contact us so we can help you work out whether you are eligible for a personal budget, and advise you on the types of support packages available.
