Carers and personalisation: What roles do carers play in personalised adult social care? What roles do carers and service users want carers to play?

Research output: Other contribution


The Social Policy Research Unit examined how current English adult social care practice balances the interests of service users and family carers, in assessment, planning, on-going management and reviews of personal budgets, particularly when budget-holders have cognitive or communication impairments. The study examined senior local authority perspectives, everyday practice by frontline staff and experiences of service users and carers.
