We understand ‘Personalisation’ to mean that those individuals who are eligible for ongoing support will have the option of designing and planning it themselves. Service users may choose to have money, called a personalised budget to pay for their support and the services they choose will be based on what they think will improve their life.

Core Arts currently work closely with people who purchase our service via Direct Payments or Personal Budgets who have identified Core Arts to benefit their well-being and social inclusion. We liaise with the individual and their mental health support team to set up a personalised payment package from their own designated bank account or via invoice directly to the payments team (resources department) This package is agreed in line with the person’s own preferred access to Core, agreed by the care team and once in place we support them further in how they specifically choose to engage with our service.
