How is Client Spending Money Managed?

Working out how much personal spending money a client will need should take into account affordability as part of a budget plan along with the clients own feelings and wants.

Money Carer will work alongside Hft and the client where appropriate in order to calculate this. We can also discuss this with family members where necessary in order to be realistic about this often sensitive issue.

Were clients are giving their own personal spending monies using a Money Carer card that we can provide we would also encourage them if possible and with support to download the Monika app onto the smartphone if they have one.

This enables them to see for themselves in real-time how much money is in their Money Carer account as also encourages participation and transparency in exactly the same way as mainstream banking applications. We fully understand, however, that this may not be possible or practical for some clients.
