Hi glitterbug,

1 Think about direct payments, personal budgets, multi-agency working, Local Authority commissioning of services, person centred planning etc.

2 In the past services were commissioned as blocks of care that individuals could choose from ie one size suits all. With personalisation Local Authorities must listen to what each individual wants so blocks of care are no longer suitable. For example in the past a social activity would be at a day centre whereas now the individual might choose to go to the pub.

3 See these:

Hope that helps

Aunty Sue
