Abstract

The Individual Budgets (IBs) pilot programme tested new ways of giving people who use adult social care 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 priorities.
Amongst other findings, the evaluation of the pilot programme found that IBs presented a variety of challenges and opportunities for the practitioners involved in their implementation.
