Finally, an alternative to traditional prepaid cards. A card designed to give your vulnerable clients guided independence and for you, as the Local Authority, to have full visibility of all spending activity.
Designed with Local Authorities in mind
When you are managing the finances of multiple vulnerable clients, traditional prepaid cards lack the flexibility needed to give clients access to their money.
Cleva’s unique card and app gives you the tools to quickly and safely manage payments for the clients under your care.
You can easily issue cards to new clients through our management platform, whilst also having better visibility of spending trends for best interest intervention. Using Cleva also means less third party funds being held or mixed in Local Authority bank accounts.
So how does Cleva work?
Every client has a digital wallet
Every client has a digital wallet which can be loaded and monitored by you or their Financial Deputy.
Each client, or care team have a Cleva card
Every client with capacity has a Cleva card which they can use to spend their own money. If they have a care team, the care staff can have a card too, to spend on their behalf.
App access for extra support
Care or support teams can also have app access to help monitor independent spending for capable users
Cleva has the ability to work across numerous clients with varying needs
Mick has battled addictions for many years.
The Local Authority Deputy supports him both in managing his finances and providing his accommodation. His rent and bills are paid for him, but his day-to-day money for food, travel and socialising has to be collected from the Local Authorities Cash Office each week.
Mick can be victim to drug dealers who know what day he gets this cash, and in the past has had this money stolen from him.
Your organisation loads money onto Mick’s Wallet when he needs it
Mick spends using his Clevacard. He now no longer has the restrictions or risk which a 'cash only' system has – he can use contactless, get a bus, and no one can take his money
Mick's Deputy can monitor his spending, he can help and advise Mick if he sees any worrying spinning trends, or suspend the card if he has a concern that Mick might be being coerced into buying things for other people.
Susan has physical disabilities and lives in specialist accommodation provided by the Local Authority, who act as her Deputy.
She is active and enjoys going out for coffee with friends. However she struggles to shop and carry goods home, so her Care Team do this for her.
This involves a convoluted process of getting money to the carers, and a time consuming administration of receipts and change etc
Your organisation loads money onto Susan's wallet when she needs it
Susan can spend using her Cleva card, but her Care Team can also spend, using their Cleva cards which are linked to her Wallet
Susan's Deputy can monitor her spending to ensure she always has access to funds. The Deputy can also monitor every item purchased by Susan's Care Team – seeing who spent what, when, where with a picture of the receipt.
