Havering has developed a draft Personal Budgets guidance and policy and a draft Direct Payments guidance and policy to allow parents, families, carers and stakeholders to gain a better understanding of Personal Budgets and Direct Payments with an aim of increasing their use.
The drafts developed to date follow discussion with parents and stakeholders as well as an analysis of the equivalent documents of other Local Authorities to help determine the best approach for Havering.
The draft documents were approved by Cabinet on 10th October 2018. At that meeting, Cabinet asked that both sets of draft guidance and policies would be subject to appropriate consultation.
Havering are seeking views from parents, families, carers and partners of these draft guidance and policies.
The consultation is now available on Havering’s Citizen’s Space.To access, click here.
The consultation closes on Friday 20th September 2019, we value your contribution and would appreciate it if you could promote this within your area to ensure we are giving the opportunity to as many people as possible to give their views on the documents.
