Ceasing a Personal Budget

Personal budgets are offered as a mechanism of improving outcomes for the child /young person in addition of increasing choice and control over the support they receive. In some cases Personal Budgets may not deliver on the agreed outcomes and therefore may need to cease. In the event of this Education, Health and social care will consider an alternative support package for the child/ young person. In these circumstances this decision will be discussed with the child/young person and their family and notice will be in writing by the local authority/CCG, along with the rights of appeal, by the recipient saying they wish to do so.

Circumstances when a Personal Budget may cease can be found in appendix 2

Where a young person transitions into adult services with an EHC plan, provision should continue with the respective agencies maintaining their statutory function and funding provision.
