Architecture for Personalisation Toolkit

Authors: Simon Duffy and Kate Fulton

Architecture for Personalisation has been tested with 11 local authorities in Yorkshire & Humber.

This revised toolkit was described by one of those involved: 

I found the toolkit very helpful. It is clear and easy to follow, and I found the practical examples, questions and prompts particularly useful in guiding you through the sections. I also like the summary table towards the beginning which highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches to brokerage because it highlights that all have potential merits.

This publication has been produced with the support of Yorkshire & Humber’s Joint Improvement Partnership and Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and published in association with Paradigm.
