Individual Budget

An Individual Budget is money given to people for them to buy in the services or equipment they need to meet their assessed care needs. Individual Budgets differ from Personal Budgets in that they pool funding resources from a variety of places, making the system easier to navigate. An Individual Budget can include a Personal Budget from a local authority as well as money from other sources such as the Independent Living Fund (ILF) or Supporting People funding.
