'Choice and Control for all' is a new report published by
Groundswell which looks at the role of Individual Service Funds
(ISFs) in delivering fully personalised care and support.
Groundswell's first report considers the pressing
challenge of introducing personal budgets for everyone and the
important role that ISFs can play in making choice and control work
for people with the most complex needs. Choice and Control for all
explores current practice in personalising care and support within
commissioned services, describes what Groundswell has tried and
learned through its work with providers and sets out a framework
for personalisation in residential settings. Groundswell believes
that ISFs should be a key part of any local strategy for making
personal budgets happen at scale and hopes this report will be an
important contribution to the debate.
The report can be downloaded from Groundswell's new website.
