Personalisation in Social Care

Author: Simon Duffy

Personalisation in Social Care is an article published by the Consumer Policy Review. The article explores how the current reforms in social care are rooted in a radically different approach to social justice and welfare to those that preceded them. 

The initial testing of these new ideas by local government and In Control have led to very positive results and the creation of new ideas like individual budgets and self-directed support. However it is unclear whether central government is ready to fully embrace these ideas and begin the process of radically reforming the welfare system to enhance citizenship for all.

The publisher is Consumer Policy Review and the article was published on the 1st September 2008.
