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 and Lancaster University is the most developed and actively used tool for checking the success of personal budgets. Its aim is to provide a national benchmark on the impact that personal budgets are having on people's lives.

Using POET we published the first ever National Personal Budget survey, commissioned by Think Local, Act Personal. This free webinar session will focus on the results of the National Personal Budget Survey and what this means for your organisation. It will also 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.

It will be a short, focused presentation with the opportunity to ask questions afterwards.

This webinar is relevant for anyone interested in demonstrating the difference that personal budgets are making to people's lives and checking the impact of service provision and whether outcomes are being met.
