Getting better outcomes for older people using personal budgets
Think Local Act Personal have published a report collating the latest information about personal budgets for older people.
The Getting Better Options report draws on research from across the sector and shows that while older people do experience positive benefits from having a personal budget, these are not as marked as for other groups.
The report 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. It also recommends what can be done to improve practice and includes case studies from councils across England that are working to improve personal budget delivery.
