Who we are
Richmond Fellowship’s Cheshire East Individual Budget Support Service works with individuals affected by mental ill health already living in their own homes to receive assistance with day-to-day tasks and activities, such as budgeting finances, housing, supporting to appointments or doing the weekly food shop.
What we do
The Recovery Focused support we deliver through the customer journey, is developed and tailored to the individual needs. The support addresses wider issues such as housing, employment and family relationships. A holistic approach to recovery is present throughout the journey to support people with mental ill health, to re-establish a meaningful life, for themselves.
The service is concerned with supporting and facilitating individuals in their mental health recovery journey. It is about learning new skills, improving social inclusion, engaging in meaningful occupation, training, volunteering or employment.
We provide support Monday to Sunday between the hours of 9am to 5pm, delivering support packages ranging from 2 hours onwards per week.
Along with supporting with Mental Health we will support accessing training courses, voluntary groups and other social activities. We will support with community inclusion, financial issues, keeping and making appointments and helping with structuring daily activities, to promote independence.
The service is can be self-funded or direct payments from CCG or Local Authority.
