What is Support in Action?
Support in Action is a scheme that enables Local Authorities to meet the criteria for National systems known as ‘Self Directed Support’, ‘Putting People First’ or ‘Personalised Budgets’.
Since the roll out and updates to the Care Act Nationally, Local Authorities are under increasing pressure to provide independent support services to people, allowing them to be in control of their own budgets and to offer accessible support available for all.
This is a tall order for a lot of areas, Action for People have worked with the National delivery team of a Personal Assistant provider helping set up their National scheme and locally in the South East – recruiting locally, providing flexible working solutions to many people who require part time flexible work resulting in a trained, vetted workforce of Personal Assistants who are accessible to those in the community who need extra support and care, from cleaning, cooking to walks in the local park.
“Making my own choices and being able to do what I want, when I want; as well as having the same opportunities and choices as others is important!”
