Support Plans

All about money
Am i right in saying that a support plan needs to be agreed before a budget or budget estimation should be given to give the user an idea on how much money they have and rules what they can spend it on?
I believe the Needs Assessment should be completed, the cost of meeting the need calculated, to give an indicative budget and then DISCUSSION should take place before final plans agreed. See he 2014 Care Act Regulations. I'm still battling to get the Needs Assessment correct, 6 years as counting!!!
Yes, calculated it should but they have paid us without a support plan in place maybe its a temporary amount until we decide, but it seems unusual? Would someone a company give you a budget before having a business plan agreed? Or give you the money upfront and then yous decide what yous want to do seems what they have done?

6 years to make amends to the needs assessment? Ridiciolous.

It's not unusual to not have a support plan.

I think it cuts work out to not do one.

Obviously they should be done.

But we have a needs assessment and direct payment money but no physical support plan

I cant complain though.. Local Authority been surprisingly good at this end.
