Managing other peoples money service

Our managing other peoples money service provides help to those unable to look after their own finances.

We only offer this service when other options, such as having a family member, friend, solicitor, accountant or specialist company to manage an individuals money, have been explored but found not to be suitable.

The services costs money and time to operate during a period when we are receiving less government funding and need to make £23 million pounds of savings between 2017 and 2020. Meanwhile, the demand and cost for this service, and others, is rising.

By introducing a charge, we hope that a significant enough contribution to the cost of the service will be raised.

Have your say

We are asking people who may be affected by the proposed changes to the managing other peoples money service to give their views on the proposals and tell us how any changes may affect them. The consultation will run from 24 July to 4 September 2017.

If you are not a service user, you can still take part if you are:

  • a carer
  • a family member
  • a friend
  • a business or organisation
  • somebody else.

Please read the information document before responding.

You can complete the survey we sent you in the post or complete the survey online. You will need to enter the reference number on the top right side of the questionnaire we sent you.

You can download the leaflet and questionnaire again if you need to, and return the questionnaire by post using the address at the end of the document.

The consultation will close at midnight on 4 September 2017.


If you need any help completing the form, have any queries or would like the documents in a different format, please contact the Business Support Team in Adult Social Care by telephone on 01202 633902 or via email at sshelpdesk@poole.gov.uk.

Next steps

Once we have analysed the consultation feedback, we will present the results to the People Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 16 October 2017, followed by Cabinet on 31 October, with a view to introducing any changes in early 2018.
