Carers Personal Budgets are an innovative and creative way to support carers to have a break. They enable carers to determine their own outcomes and have greater choice and control.
Where the carer has a significant need for respite breaks the service users Resource Allocation System (RAS) process should be used to determine the respite allocation within their personal budget.
Part of the rationale of Carers Personal Budgets is to reduce abusive situations.
