Client Financial Services is a unique team responsible for conducting the financial assessments for recipients of Adult Care Services provided by Birmingham City Council. 

A city-wide team, Client Financial Services also handle the financial monitoring of over 3000+ accounts, administer Birmingham City Council's Direct Payment system for providing care, and also oversees the Appointee and Court Deputy service, which assists vulnerable citizens to manage their finances.  In addition to all of the above, Client Financial Services provide advice and information for citizens and staff alike on all aspects of the financial elements of the care process.
