What is a Personal Budget?

As part of the new SEND system, parents, carers and young people can apply for Personal Budgets. A Personal Budget is an amount of money identified by the Local Authority to deliver elements of the provision set out in an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Any Personal Budget should positively impact on specified outcomes identified in the EHCP.

Suffolk County Councils Personal Budget Policy.

We are working towards having more scope for Personal Budgets to give families more choice and control over the provision they receive. If you have any questions about Personal Budgets please email localoffer@suffolk.gov.uk.
