NE Lincolnshire Council: Social Care Handbook
Focus Adult Social Work

Where a person asks the council to directly provide them with services to the value of their personal budget.

Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

When your council allocates an amount of money to you as a personal budget, you can take this either as cash through a direct payment or as a managed budget (also known as a virtual budget). If you take it as a managed budget, the council manages the money for you to arrange the services you choose, and you aren't responsible for paying directly for the services you receive.
