Prepaid Payment Cards Launch Event
Bristol City Council is introducing Prepaid Payment Cards for people who receive a personal budget to achieve their adult care and support outcomes.
More than 100 local authorities are already successfully using Prepaid Payment Cards to help people manage their personal budgets more effectively.
We will be hosting an initial information event so that you can find out more.
This event will explain:
- What are prepaid payment cards?
- How do they work?
- What are the benefits?
Who should attend:
- Anyone who receives a direct payment from Bristol City Council for adult social care
- Providers and agencies who support people who receive direct payments
Places will be limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. We will also be recording the session so you can watch it online if you are unable to attend.
Further information will also be published on our website over the coming months.
