  • Personalisation is a model of social care, whereby individuals receiving care have much greater choice about how their care package is planned for and delivered
  • It means that individuals can use a personal budget, paid to them by the local authority to arrange their own services to meet their needs
  • Previously, the local authorities would commission services for individuals based on what the assessor felt that they needed
  • As well as ensuring that individuals have choice and control over their care, it also helps them to maintain their dignity and have more self-esteem, which can contribute towards their wellbeing
