Bringing Calm to Chaos

The Money Carer Foundation is an award winning national social enterprise selected to represent best practice and innovation in the finance category of the 2017/18 Parliamentary Review.

We provide a trusted appointeeship service to protect vulnerable adults who are not able to manage their own financial affairs. Often, we simply bring order to chaos for many of our clients.

We deliver our services using the 5 Principles of the Mental Capacity Act whenever possible and acknowledge the views documented within the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). Given that appointeeships are not covered by the MCA 2005 or its governing principles (see MCA Code of Practice, para 8.36) we fully support the development of an updated legislative framework that provides greater clarity and definition accordingly.

Money management is simply a small part of the overall support that we provide for the vulnerable people we help. We are a national social enterprise that has earned an enviable reputation for supporting people with different care needs using creativity and innovation every step of the way. Examples of our innovations and how they protect people from financial abuse are the Carers Shopping Card Service and our Expat Relative Support Service.

Our clients range from people with learning disabilities or individuals who may have memory problems to people who may suffer from substance misuse issues or have mental health problems.

Our referring partners range from local authorities to the NHS, private hospitals, care providers, solicitors, accountants, general practitioners, psychiatrists and age, mental health or disability focused charities.

The Money Carer Foundation are nationally known for our 'can do' and pro-active attitude towards resolving everyday money management issues. Our ability to creatively partner with the organisations that form our clients 'circle of care' is central to why we are successful. 

Importantly, we are a completely independent organisation. This enables us to avoid the conflicts of interest that often arise when local authorities, care providers, housing associations or other organisations manage the finances of people that they provide other care services for.

By partnering with local authorities and other organisations we are able to help people with their everyday money management and budgeting needs in a friendly and professional manner. Our holistic approach solves problems and provides a practical and common sense approach to resolving financial issues for our clients keeping their well being outcomes at the centre of our relationship.

How We Are Funded

The Money Carer Foundation provides a comprehensive daily money management service with a clear monthly fee structure. In many cases the fees for our services are met by local authorities, via recognition that are service qualifies for disability disregard expenditure.

Individuals are also able to pay for our daily money management service directly if alternative funding is not available. We are often creative in finding funding solutions for clients and in some cases a funding split from supporting organisations or individuals may be possible.

We operate a fixed monthly fee structure for our daily money management service as follows:

  • Supporting Service Users in Community Settings - £65 PCM

  • Supporting Service Users in Nursing or Residential Home Settings - £35 PCM

Managing the daily money management needs of vulnerable people can often be an expensive and time consuming process for care providers, local authorities, family members or other support teams and as such providing an effective money management service can often prove to be problematic and costly for many organisations that do not have the technology or necessary experience in this area.

The appointeeship services from The Money Carer Foundation provide a practical and efficient way to deliver a secure and cost effective money management service as part of the wider care teams who supports people in need of financial assistance.
