Getting active using personal budgets

We believe that if you have a personal budget or personal health budget and want to get active, you should be able to write this into your support plan. You should have choice and control over the way your personal budget is used – that is after all what a personal budget is designed to do.

Health and social care professionals

Physical activity can be a form of medicine if we do it regularly and in the way that is right for us. It can also meet our social need to engage with our community, friends and have fun. We believe that personal budgets and personal health budgets can and should be used by individuals who think that getting active will help them meet their outcomes.

Sport providers and CSPs

The sports sector is key to getting physical activity on the health and social care agenda as an important part of disabled people living happy and healthy lives. We believe that if more disabled people live an active life, there is less likelihood of needing to engage with health and social care services. Personal budgets and personal health budgets can and should be an important part of making this happen.
