Despite any initial worries we may have had about having a personal budget, ultimately we all believe that it really has been worth it for the difference it has made to our lives, and the better outcomes we have all achieved.
(‘Lets talk about personalisation’ workshop attendees - April 2013)
Cornerstones of Making it Real and personalisation are:
Need to move from Informing and Consulting to Supporting and Empowering helping people to Take Control and Get Involved

Barnsley’s Local Account asked :
Evidence was sourced from:
We are producing a new DVD which will have peoples stories and a menu of information about each stage of the personalisation journey. There will be narrative and footage from people who are currently receiving a personal budget. This will also be available via our website and on Youtube
“There is so much information to take on board. We need information at the right stage/time in the process, and in different forms, particularly more visuals , with advice from Peers
“The process of recruiting a PA can be lengthy and can feel complicated. We need to be able to find a PA quicker and have access to smarter, responsive support to help us with the process of being an employer
The development of a common
and shared perspective of supply and demand, leading
to an evidenced, published, market position statement
Improved information and advice giving wider access to most appropriate services
Developing services to meet changes in demand
Strong feedback systems in place
MARKET DEVELOPMENT – CO-PRODUCTION WITH PROVIDERS ENSURING THEY UNDERSTAND CHALLENGE AHEAD
“Barnsley Adult Social Care helped my Mum so much. Having a Personal Budget and employing Personal Assistants means that she does not have to go into care and can stay in her own home independently. As her main carer , this has positively impacted on my life and means I don’t worry as much ,can enjoy being her daughter again, and have got some of my own life back.
I now want to give something back , and be positively involved in helping other people to benefit from having a personal budget, just like we did”
