Stockton on Tees Borough Council is committed to putting all our customers at the heart of all we do. For Adult Social Care this means doing everything we can, where you have eligible social care needs. To be person centered in the way support and care is provided.
Self-Directed Support is an important step to personalising social care services. People who qualify for social care services now have the option of getting help to arrange their own support using a Personal Budget, or where the person prefers, the Council will arrange that support on their behalf.
We want to give people greater control over how their Personal Budget is used. People will be able to choose who will help them organise and deliver their support.
