Who can apply? 

Applications are welcomed from:

  •  adults with a disability that are currently in receipt of HSE funded services; provided either directly by the HSE or through the non-statutory sector (including day services, residential services, respite services, rehabilitative training or personal assistance).
  •  young people leaving school in 2020 that have a commitment to a funded day service can also apply.


What is a personalised budget

A personalised budget is an amount of funding that a person with a disability may be considered for by the HSE. If a person qualifies for a Personalised Budget they can make their own arrangements to meet their support needs, instead of having their needs met directly for them by the HSE and HSE funded services providers. People with disabilities currently in receipt of HSE funded services can apply for a personalised budget if they so choose or they can choose to continue with their traditional services from the HSE or a HSE funded service provider.
