Care Support Planning

Providing carers with help and support
to develop and implement a care support plan.

Care2Care's Support Planning service is for anyone needing advice, help and support in developing a care support plan. It is particularly suitable for older people, and people with learning disabilities, physical and/or sensory impairments, mental health needs and people with dementia who would like help to complete their Direct Payments Support Plans.

The Support Planning service assists individuals to identify what is not working in their life, how they want their lives to be and what changes need to be made to achieve that. It will help them to think about how to use their budgets to gain the most benefit. The service will liaise and negotiate with service providers to ensure the Support Plans reflect their wishes and meet their individual needs.

Services provided include:

  • Home visits in your own environment for a better understanding of your needs.
  • Working with you to map out your needs and identifying what services will suit you best.
  • Identifying appropriate services and provider options that can meet your needs and contacting providers on your behalf for further clarification where necessary.
  • Support to arrange and meet service providers including support to recruit a Personal Assistant (PA).
  • Writing up your Support Plan and Sign Off Record and making them ready for submission.
  • Support to appeal decisions if necessary.
  • Group Support Planning.

An estimate of the appropriate level of service will be provided following the initial visit when staff have assessed the complexity of the case. The Support Planning service can be paid for out of your individual budget.

The service includes the submission of the plans to Sheffield City Council for approval, and appeals where necessary, and the subsequent implementation of the selected services.
