This service is for people who are in receipt of a 'personal budget'.
If you have been allocated a personal budget, Sheffield Mind’s Budget Management Service can help you by setting up a managed account, where we hold your money for you and pay the bills. This takes a lot of the hassle from you and helps keep your personal budget safe.
The Budget Management Service deals with the financial side of your personal budget starting when your Support Plan has been agreed. The service will organise all the paperwork needed to release your personal budget, making sure everything is processed efficiently. Sheffield Mind will be on the end of a phone if you have any questions or concerns. Once we have received your personal budget, we can help with purchasing items and services in your plan. The service will do this in the best way for you which might mean you purchase the item and then we reimburse you or purchase items on your behalf. Sheffield Mind can provide a regular statement so you can keep track of what is going in and out of your personal budget.
