Individual Budgets (IBs), piloted in 13 English local authorities, aimed to give greater flexibility, choice and control. Although primarily intended to benefit chronically sick, disabled and older people, IBs could also be expected to affect carers. This study investigated the impact of IBs on carers in terms of assessment, support planning, costs and outcomes.
