Money Matters

Other Money Matters resources here

Do you know your DSA from your ESA, your PIP from your PHB? Families know how important it is to make sure you know your entitlements (both for your relative with learning disabilities and for yourself as a carer), and how to challenge decisions if you are unhappy.

It is also important to know the different options for managing money allocated for social care or health care. Some people assume that the only choice is between having a direct payment or using the services the council offers, but there is a variety of ways you can use personal budgets and personal health budgets.

Good financial planning can make a big difference in later life and many families want to know how they can get organised using Wills, trusts and other ways of managing family money.
