Fund holding is another service designed to promote independent living. If people who are receiving a Direct Payment or Personal Health Budget do not want or cannot manage their own funds we can do this for them. This service includes managing funds for our members, paying personal assistants, paying day care costs and so on.
It has been very important to us to develop this service as, in the past, fund holding services have been located outside of Waltham Forest. This has made it very difficult for people to talk face to face with the organisations holding their funds for them. We have created a local service here in the borough which people can come to for help and advice. We are also working with local payroll providers to make sure that payroll services are also accessible.
If you would like more information about our fund holding services or have a question you need answered please call Graham on 020 8519 6369 option 3.
