Personal Budgets 

A personal budget is an amount of money identified to deliver parts of the provision set out to meet the special educational needs of your child or a young person in an Education, Health and Care plan. A personal budget can be made up of resources from education, health and social care budgets.

Requesting a Personal Budget

There are several different types of assessment carried out by education, health and social care services that can lead to a personal budget.

The information provided here is about asking for a personal budget when an Education, Health and Care plan is being considered or where an Education, Health and Care plan is being reviewed.

Parents, carers or young people (aged 16 and over) have the right to request a personal budget during the assessment and planning process when an Education, Health and Care plan is being drawn up or when an existing plan is being reviewed.

Developing Personal Budgets

A personal budget has to be specifically related to the outcomes identified in the EHC plan to support your child or a young person’s special educational and related needs.

This is a set of arrangements that was introduced in September 2014. The local authority will work on this collaboratively with families, children and young people as well as other key stakeholders.

Schools, academies and post-16 providers are currently required to provide appropriate support for children with SEN and disabilities through the funding that is made available by both local and central government. Schools, academies, post-16 providers and special schools already have funding to meet a wide range of learning support needs.
