Personalisation & Individual Support Plans
PERSONALISATION AND S.D.S. Fees for Adult Services Only
Buddies Clubs and Services provide a range of services for children and adults affected by disability. All our services have been developed with input from our families and service users. We like to meet our families and carry out assessments of individual need before we build Personal Support Plans for our clients. At present we offer the following services for young adults from 19-35:
1. Community Outreach/ Community Support:
This includes Escort to and from college, escort to and from residential respite, evening outings and weekend trips and outings. We are also in the process of researching volunteer and work opportunities for our young people who will require different levels of support to enable full participation in such projects.
Hourly rates: 1-1 Support £15.00/hour. 2-1 support £25.00/ hour.
Staff public transport included in this rate, all other extras such as meals out, concert tickets, theatre tickets, sports outings and snacks will need individual budgets. Taxi's can also be provided with escort but incur an extra charge.
2. Other services available at present are:
Evening clubs: These are charged per session and cost from £15.00 - £35.00 depending on the level of support required. Some young people who require 2-1 for outings can be accommodated on 1-1 ratio when indoors. Transport is also available for local users to access their clubs and costs £5.00 per trip.
Holiday clubs which are during school and college holidays and run from 9.00-3.00pm.
Charges per day range from £40.00 -£90.00 depending on the level of support. There are small extra charges for outings and trips. Clients provide their own packed lunches. We can also arrange community outreach during periods when there are no holiday clubs.
3. Adventure Breaks:
This is a new service we have started and we have had funding in the first round of Short Break Funding. We hope the success of this will lead to clients being able to choose these from their budgets.
Cost per 4 night/ 5 day break is £1,250- £1,500. Per client depending on the level of support required. This includes: Transport to from and during the break, all food, trips and outings and full 24 hour support.
We can also organise tailor made breaks for groups or individuals after her discussion with families.
We can also provide staff to support someone to go on holiday with their family. Again prices are agreed after assessment and discussion with families.
Further services and individual support packages will be added in the near future as families identify other needs.
We look forward to providing individual support plans for children in the near future.
