The VAPH is the Flemish Agency for Disabled Persons. The VAPH awards an allowance to assist with the purchase of equipment and modifications to the home and car. The VAPH accredits and subsidises a range of services (companion care, day care, residential care) which can be accessed directly by people with a (suspected) disability. She allocates the personal budget for adults: a personalised annual sum which can be used by people with a disability to purchase care and support from within their own network, from volunteers, individual companions, professional carers and VAPH-accredited care providers. For minors she pays the personal assistance budget for minors: a budget to organise support at home. The VAPH accredits and subsidises multifunctional centres at which minors are diagnosed, assigned companions or provided with day care.
