Podcast: Making It Personal
The pamphlet explores, with a focus on social care, the next stage of a personalising approach to public services: people given an individual budget so they can shape, with the advice of peers, family and professionals, the support they need. Niamh and Jamie discuss why these self-directed services are such an important transformation of how traditional public services work, and what impact they really have.
