An Individual Service Fund is where you choose a provider, rather than the council or yourself, to manage your personal budget.

The provider will use the Individual Service Fund to arrange services and support for you, with your agreement. With an Individual Service Fund you get choice and control of your support without having to manage the money yourself.
