The overall aim of Managing other people's money policy is to provide a service to those people who are unable to look after their day-to-day financial and/or welfare issues and where no other person(s) can be identified to undertake this role.
This is necessary to help keep adults at risk of harm safe from financial exploitation and to keep them in control of and manage their money as fully as possible.
The above is a Borough of Poole document from pre 1 April 2019 (unless otherwise stated). It has been adopted by BCP Council and will, in time, be replaced by a BCP Council document.
This document applies to service users from the Poole locality and to staff carrying out functions that relate to these individuals. Minor changes may have been made to ensure contact information and website links are correct and relevant from 1 April 2019.
All policies will now be reviewed as part of a planned schedule, following the Borough’s transition to BCP Council on 1 April 2019.
