You will need to have an assessment before you can use the services. The assessment will identify what your care needs are and what support you require.
The assessment is normally undertaken by:
Once your assessment has been agreed this will be sent to the Support Options team who will ensure the most appropriate support provider(s) are commissioned to meet your needs as detailed in your Support Plan.
Alternatively, you may wish to purchase your own Community Care service(s) as detailed in your Support Plan.
Once your personal budget has been established via your assessment, the Support Options Team will be able to direct you to provider organisations that will be able to deliver the type of service you require or assist you to employ your own personal assistant.
If you require access to a service which is currently not an accredited provider with Bradford Council the team will look into establishing such a provision.
There are a wide range of organisations throughout the Bradford District who will be able to assist with your needs.
There is no standard charge and the cost of the service will depend on the type of service you require.
How much you will pay will be calculated following an individual financial assessment.
