Architecture for Personalisation is a report describing progress in Yorkshire & Humber towards developing a community-based approach to supporting personalisation and self-directed support.
The report also examines the fundamental changes that will need to be made to the role of care managers and challenges the presumption that a new set of independent professionals is the key to personalisation.
Instead the report demonstrates that better use could be made of existing community capacities - including the skills and abilities of service providers, community organisations and social workers.
