Q. What is a Personal Budget?
A. Personal budgets are an allocation of funding given to individuals after an assessment of their needs. In the future, all those with substantial or critical needs will be entitled to a Personal Budget for their care with the region.
If you have mental health needs but are ineligible for a personal budget you can purchase a membership in receipt of a letter from your GP or referral agent. Subsidised memberships can be bought in monthly block payments.
Please send or hand-deliver all completed forms to:

This was to support those wishing to join in Chilli Studios Creative activities during the Covid19 crisis.
From September 2020 membership will be back to the subsidised £10 a month for full membership which includes all venue based workshops, online activity and postal offers. If attending only 1 ONLINE workshop a week we would be grateful for a donation to our charity.
