Personalised Commissioning Fund
As we approach May half-term and upcoming summer holidays, we would like to encourage Keyworkers supporting a family through an FFA, to consider submitting applications where there is need identified in the FFA that can be met through personalised commissioning (PC) in line with set criteria for this funding.
Personalised Commissioning can be applied for by the keyworker of an open Families First Episode using the simple application form, which is accessed through the EHM system. Click here to access a fact sheet outlining the criteria including dates for decisions. Keyworkers – please contact your Your Local senior or Families First Coordinator should you require support with PC application or to discuss this further. [Tina please make contact your local Senior… to link to local contacts directly and put link to PC factsheet where I have said click her to access …]
You can apply for funding if a need is identified during an assessment and if this is clearly shown within the family plan within the finalised Families First Assessment, or after any subsequent Team Around the Family meeting (please note that the episode will need to be up to date on the EHM system and any needs or agreed actions must be updated within the timescales according to the - Families First Practice Guidance )
The funding can be applied for activities or items, so it is a good time to be considering any family or individual activities for the pending school holidays. Please consider positive activities for children and young people such as sports camps, sports classes, art or drama clubs, dance clubs, music activities etc. that will promote the safety and social wellbeing of the children and young people and is clearly linked to an identified need in the FFA or Family Plan.
