Appointree has been developed as an enabling service. We aim to offer the appropriate level of assistance and intervention as required, whilst promoting as much independence as possible. Our comprehensive service ensures that individuals receive their maximum benefit entitlement and pay their bills on time. We are able to work with the individual to plan a realistic weekly household budget, empowering and supporting them to make decisions if appropriate. At Appointree we recognise that, whilst individuals may need help with daily money management tasks, our service does not override their rights and where possible, individuals have the right to access their money and decide how they wish to spend it
The Appointree packages are completely tailor-made which makes them different to any other service. Our services have been designed to be flexible in order to reflect each particular need. Appointree is built on over 30 years experience in the benefits, advice and care industry and our portfolio continues to grow through personal recommendation. We work closely with Social Care and Health Departments, Primary Care Trusts, Care & Support agencies, families and the individual. Referrals can be made by social workers from Health and Community Services who may agree to fund the role or, alternatively, the service can be purchased by other organisations or by the individual themselves.
Appointree is registered with The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) as a corporate personal appointed body (PAB). We offer a specialist service to individuals across the whole range of DWP benefits and also help clients manage their money in a wide range of circumstances to meet their individual needs.
