Further Information

Monitoring and Review

Bedford Borough Council aims to provide the most appropriate resources to assist individuals who provide care for children with disabilities, to enable them to continue to do so, or to do so more effectively by giving them breaks from caring.

It is also to present opportunities for children and young people with disabilities to be able to experience new activities, establish and build friendships and pursue their aspirational goals.

Bedford Borough Council recognises that the needs of children and their families change and that re-assessment of these needs may be required.

If you would like your needs re-assessed please contact the Lead Professional or Social Worker who will be able to discuss this with you further.

 

Direct Payments

Direct payments are local council payments for people who have had a formal assessment of need.  They can be used for Short Break Services, or as an alternative to direct services.

This option will be provided with support to assist you in getting started, and there is no obligation on you to take this option up.

If you do not have an allocated Social Worker you can contact the Direct Payments Support Team at the Disability Resource Centre, who can give you more information. (01582 470900)
