Assessment & Personal Budget
LA Assessment & Personal Budget
Hello anyone encountered what we are, and if so any suggestions other than a Solicitors letter? Asked LA under their duties, to access a Personal Budget. Not caring out, fund cutting we think! Instead they have sent us leaflets about what is on in our area for services for children with disabilities!
Our daughter now 12, commenced a specialist school in September, right move! Our Authority used to have an Aiming High Grant from Short Breaks, used it for equine and totally cut! What we want to do is access the Personal Budget to pay a TA from school, so she can join Guides. She did very well at Brownies. She will not agree to me supporting her, which we totally understand. Tried writing to our Councillor, contacted Contact a Family for advice. A letter to the Director, they have a legal responsibility. Anyone encountered this?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
