Payment of a Personal Travel Budget will be made in advance at the start of each half term and is based on the number of days in your child’s school or college timetable for that period. You do not need to open a separate bank account to be used solely for receiving cash payments*. However if your child already has an account for direct payments you can use that.
(*N.B. If your child or the young person you care for moves across to Adult Services, you will need a separate bank account at this point).
