Care and Support Funding
Navigating the daunting world of care charges and benefits can be an extremely stressful process and without professional advice parents can end up paying much more than they should for the vital care of loved ones, due to having no legal or professional knowledge of what they can also re-claim back as expenses.
Our appointeeship service offers a flexible and empowering way for users to manage their daily financial affairs. As a partner with the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions), our appointees are given legal authority to oversee a client’s use of state benefits. We offer our services to clients who lack the capacity to look after their own finances. Our team of friendly, trusted appointees work hand-in-hand with clients and their families/carers to assist with daily financial management. This can be anything from paying energy bills and rent, to organising food allowance payments. We deliver a friendly and tailored service that helps empower the day-to-day lives of our service users, and includes them in all decisions in order to act in their best interests.

I used Professional Appointees Services to get funding for my daughter. They made the process smooth and painless, I would highly recommend them.
