Getting Better Outcomes for Older People using personal budgets
This report collates research from across the sector to show that older people do experience positive benefits from having a personal budget, although these are not as marked as for other groups.
It draws on TLAP’s recent work to highlight what does and doesn't work well for older people using personal budgets, recommends what can be done to improve practice and includes case studies from councils across England that are working to improve personal budget delivery.
Better process for accessing and using personal budgets is strongly associated with better outcomes for people, so the report recommends that anything councils can do to improve their personal budgets processes is likely to be of benefit to older people. It follows on from earlier work by TLAP and ADASS in 2013 on reviewing progress with personal budgets for older people.
