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.
