Personal budgets tool
Think Local Act Personal have developed a Personal Budgets Minimum Process Framework to help councils by suggesting simpler and less bureaucratic ways to meet people’s needs. It lists what councils must do to meet their Care Act responsibilities, and addresses many of the process problems reported by people who use services, carers and families.
This framework covers the different process steps, including people’s first contact with the council. An overview is provided for each of these steps and people can also see the common problems encountered, and ideas for possible solutions based on case studies from Councils across England.
You can access this framework here.
