you2choose for YOU
you2choose.com is a unique and easy to use online Social Care and Support Services directory, which empowers independent living.
Traditionally in the UK if you were eligible to receive Social Care support, a package of care was organised or your behalf. This often led to issues regarding level and quality of service received. This has now changed to a new programme of Self Directed Support, whereby you are in charge of your social care needs. Through a personal budget, you can choose what services you receive and how those services should be delivered.
you2choose.com enables anyone especially those eligible for social care support, as well as those that don’t receive any support and have to pay for care themselves, to search, reserve, book and pay for the goods and services you want from Service Suppliers – such as nursing homes, home care agencies, mobility providers etc – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in real time over the internet.
The key benefits of using you2choose.com are:
You decide want services you want to receive and how they are delivered.
More than 24,000 social care providers listed in one place.
It can be accessed from your home, local library, mobile phone or anywhere in the world, where there is internet access.
Very quick, convenient and easy to use.
