Getting Better Outcomes for Older People using personal budgets

This new report by TLAP brings together the latest information about personal budgets for older people, including the work in Gateshead Council piloting the introduction of Individual Service Funds in its extra care housing schemes working in conjunction with their contracted housing provider.

It also:

  • draws on recent work of the Think Local Act Personal partnership to highlight what does and doesn't work well for older people using personal budgets
  • recommends what can be done to improve practice
  • includes other case studies from councils across England that are working to improve personal budget delivery to support older people at home.
