An indicative budget gives a rough idea of the level of funding that will be allocated to an individual, in their Personal Budget, to meet their eligible needs. It is based on what it would cost to meet their needs, as determined by the Resource Allocation System (RAS).
The indicative budget allows individuals to create a Support Plan that will deliver the outcomes to best meet their identified assessed needs.
The indicative budget is used only as a guide. A final Personal Budget amount may be set higher or lower than this amount, depending on how a support plan shows the person’s needs can be met.
