Focus on the outcomes not just the numbers webinar recording now available

On July 16 we held a webinar to demonsrate how councils can use In Control and Lancaster University's Personal Outcomes Evaluation Tool (POET) for free.

The session was presented by John Waters and Tim Parkin. POET  has been developed over a number of years by In Control and the Centre for Disability Research at Lancaster University.  Its aim is to provide a national benchmark on the impact that personal budgets are having on people's lives.

We are delighted to announce that Care Services Minister Norman Lamb has just recommended that all councils should be checking people's experiences of using personal budgets, through tools such as POET. Furthermore he has confirmed that funding has been made available to all adult social services in English councils to access POET for free.

This webinar provided more information on POET and how councils can now access it for free.

A recording of the session and the slides used can now be viewed here.
