People who use care and support are being asked what they expect from personalisation.
Personalisation is about putting individuals in the driving seat of building a system of care and support that is designed with their full involvement and tailored to meet their own unique needs.
People receive their own budget and can decide how, who with and where they wish to spend that budget in order to meet their needs.
Doncaster Council is holding a workshop on 8th March 2013, at Doncaster Lakeside Community Church, Salvation Army, Booth Avenue, Doncaster, DN4 5JN (www.lakesidesa.co.uk).
The aim of the workshop is to facilitate discussions with service users, carers and other people to measure where the council is in relation to Making It Real.
Making it Real sets out what people who use social care services and carers expect to see and experience if support services are truly personalised.
It is a set of ‘progress markers’ - written by real people and families - that can help an organisation to check how they are going towards transforming adult social care.
Joan Beck, Doncaster Council Director Adults and Communities said: ‘The aim of Making it Real is for people to have more choice and control so they can live full and independent lives. I hope people will attend the workshop and have their say.’
The workshop will start at 2.00pm and finish around 4.00pm, with refreshments provided.
