Personal budgets for children and young people

Since April 2014 any child with continuing care needs will be offered a personal budget.

A personal budget is an agreed amount of money allocated to support a child or young person with special educational needs or a disability. Read more about them on the Leeds City Council website.

This approach is now extending to children using education, health and care plans (EHCP). We will do more to ensure that people have all the information they need to access and use the personal budget, and support to manage it.
