Forthcoming webinars

In Control has launched an exciting new service - webinars!

We will be hosting regular events on key topics in relation to personalisation, meaning that you will be able to get access to cutting edge information from the sector all without having to leave the comfort of your office.

This new service will enable delegates to save the time and expense of travelling to an event. They will be able to participate in short, focused online sessions involving leading people in the personalisation field. Delegates will even have the opportunity to ask questions afterwards!

A number of dates have already been secured for the next few months. Some of these will be open access, however a number (those marked with *) will only be available to members of our Stay Connected network.

Forthcoming webinars include:


Checking the results of personal budgets

19 January 2012 - 10am to 10.30am

John Waters, research and evaluation lead for In Control

Local authorities and providers need to demonstrate the difference that personal budgets are making to people's lives and to put in place independent processes to check that outcomes are being met.

POET (Personal Outcomes Evaluation Tool), developed by In Control Lancaster University is the most developed and actively used tool for checking the success of personal budgets. This session will demonstrate how POET can enable organisations to review their delivery of self-directed support; identify good practice and areas for learning; inform strategic planning and increase local accountability.
