Option 4 - Case Study
Fraser - Using Option 4
Fraser has a learning disability and has been working with his social worker on preparing to leave school. He wants to build up his confidence trying new things and wants to make more friends over the summer holiday period. The council has also arranged support for him during the week to help him learn to travel by himself.
After discussing this with his worker, Fraser decides to apply for a personal budget to attend the Summer Programme run by a local agency under option 2 but is happy for the council to keep contracting with the care agency to help him learn to travel alone under Option 3.
“I’m excited to be able to try new things but I like my social worker helping me.”
