PERSONAL BUDGETS SUPPORT
Making a Difference
People who are using a Direct Payment or Personal Health Budget to arrange their own care and support may need advice and support to do this. DASH are the only local organisation on the approved providers list given by Hillingdon Council to help you with this.
We can support you with:
Employing a named personal assistant - A service to assist in the necessary arrangements to formally set up a PA up to and including the completion of a probationary period. Normally for situations where the individual has found their own PA.
Ongoing support to employ a personal assistant - To assist with the day to day circumstances of employment from appraisal to performance concerns, annual leave, terms and conditions queries.
A managed account - Under the direction of the individual this service will organise and arrange all of their care and ensure the record keeping meeting the local authorities requirements
DBS Check - To perform a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check for your personal assistant.
