Introduction to Individualised Funding

Thank you for your interest in Lifewise’s support for Individualised Funding! When we meet with you at the start, we will talk you through how to use Individualised Funding (IF).


We want to keep it as simple as possible for you, so depending on how you choose to use IF you may not need all of the information in this booklet.

Please feel free to call us if you want to talk more about IF and how we can support you to make the most of your funding – Natalie 09 632 6563 or Michelle 09 623 6569.
