Does Leeds have a policy for how it will manage personal budgets and direct payments?
The policy has been drafted by members of children’s services in partnership with representatives from EPIC Leeds parents and carers’ participation forum, health and Leeds Centre for Integrated Living in response to the Children and Families Act 2014.
The aim of the policy is to explain the approach taken by Leeds City Council (LCC) and the Leeds NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to personal budgets across education, health and social care for children and young people. It also includes detailed guidance regarding direct payments.
The new Handbook and policy document can be found in the documents section on this page.
