Research output: Other contribution


The Individual Budgets (IBs) pilot programme tested new ways of giving people who use social care services a greater say in the assessment of their needs, better understanding of how resources are allocated to meet those needs, and greater flexibility in using resources to meet individual needs and
priorities. The evaluation found that IBs were generally welcomed by users because they gave them more control over their lives, but there were variations in outcomes between user groups.
