Personalised Support is a system for designing and organising around the needs of the individual.
The Personalised Pathway is a model for services and support for children and families - it puts families in the driving seat from the very beginning.
Personalisation can be developed as system-wide innovation. However it requires changes at every point: lead professional, finance and contracting and commissioning.
Plans should be personal - and they should integrate care, support, education or whatever else people need to plan for.
Any model for improving systems can be improved if it is subject to a four stage iterative process.
Keys to Citizenship
The Keys to Citizenship was a model developed to explain the practical steps that are necessary to achieve meaningful, everyday citizenship.
Integration through Personalisation
In public policy integration has often meant the brining together of services of funding that has been separated at the national level at some local level.
Individual Service Fund (ISF)
An Individual Service Fund is a useful way in which resources can be used flexibly to achieve personalised support.
An individual budget is one approach to enabling people to take more control of their own support - by giving people knowledge of what they are entitled to.
