How many people in Trafford are currently receiving Personal Budgets? How many are entitled to Personal Budgets?
We have 2416 people with a personal budget, out of a total of 6978.
= 34.6% of people, on schedule to meet our end of year target of 50%.
Of these people 1007 have taken up Direct Payments.

Right to Control – how will this affect groups and how can they get involved?
Right to control makes personal budgets a legal right and rolls out personalisation to additional funding streams – Access to Work, Work Choice, Supporting People, Equipment, Disability Facilities Grant and Independent Living Fund
Useful to arrange training session for members?
How do the brokers identify the organisations offering services?
Role of brokers is to support customers to achieve their anticipated outcomes so they search out services/organisations in response to individual requirements rather than use a prescriptive list
They also build up a library and knowledge of potential services
Useful for the group to pull together an information sheet about services on offer so we can give to brokers and customers?
Who are the Brokers and how do you decide who sits on their panels?
Mixture of in house brokers and brokers from VCS e.g. Genie Network, Age Concern and Centre for Independent Living
Council responsible for sign off of support plans – ensure personal budget right amount and being spent appropriately to meet outcomes. Done via resource panel
How are people currently receiving support given the choice of services they access through Personal Budgets?
