Help With Managing Your Money

What does it do?

In certain circumstances, your care manager may identify that you need help with money matters, such as paying bills or getting cash from the bank. This will be shown as part of your support plan. We have strict rules and procedures covering the way our staff help you deal with your money and valuables. We will:

Respect your right to control your own money and personal property.
Help you to be as independent as possible in handling your own money.
Manage your finances and valuables properly.
Make sure that information about your finances is kept confidential.
Safeguard against neglect and financial abuse.
