In the future, people needing social care will be able to:
- assess their own needs
- receive their funding directly
- manage their own individual budgets
- organise and purchase their own support.
If individuals feel unable to manage some or all of this themselves, they will be able to access help and support from others, such as brokers, the local authority and service providers.
Individual budget holders will be able to take as much or as little control of this as they like.
