Funding and Payment

1st Focus Homecare charge rates are highly competitive and we provide care at home through Self Directed Support or privately funded individuals, or a combination of both.  Contact our team at any point and we can discuss our charge rates.


Self Directed Support


You can find out more about Self Directed Support at:-




The Act requires local authorities to offer people four choices:


Option 1: You ask the local authority to provide you with a direct payment, also known as a personal budget, which you can use to pay for support yourself from 1st Focus Homecare.


Option 2: Your funding is allocated to a provider of your choice, also known as an Individual Service Fund (ISF), and ask the care provider to manage the budget – although you are in charge of how you spend it. 


Option 3: The council can arrange a service for you. The council will manage the budget and choose the provider.


Option 4: You ask the local authority for a mix of these options for different types of support
