Making it Real - how to do personalised care and support

Making it Real

Payment cards as a means of managing a personal budget

" It is vital that when individuals receive a personal budget they have access to the full range of options, including whether or not to have a direct payment, and whether this is provided via a pre-paid card", says Minister of State for Care Caroline Dinenage.  

TLAP publishes a report based on research by the Independent Living Strategy Group & In Contol on the use of payment cards. It offers recommendations to support best practice and ensure greater consistency in their use by local authorities.  Read the news story. Download the report on payment cards.
