personalisation agenda high in people's minds.

And this is why our New Year Resolution is to publish and
promote good news more often to keep the feel good factor
We want to showcase how being in control - individuals having
control over their own care plan and services through a personal
budget - helps people feel good.
After all, there is so much we can and should celebrate to help
us remember why we do the work we do. We want to encourage as many
people as possible to share their good news stories and help us not
only showcase the amazing work we all do to help those in need, but
help everyone, everywhere gain a better understanding of why
personal budgets and personalisation is so important.
It's our #FeelGoodInControl campaign.
To get involved all you need to do is email us your good news
stories, or promote them and other good news events through your
social media networks using the hashtag #FeelGoodInControl.
We will do the same and with everyone getting involved, we
should discover a lot to make us all feel good about how we help
people be in control.
To contribute use the hashtags #FeelGoodInControl when you
promote your stories or email your stories to Laura Bimpson via
Remember the more we share how personalisation helps people to
be more 'in control' and 'feel good' the more awareness there will
be of the value and need to ensure that everyone has access to a
personal budget to help them live the lives they choose.
