what is an ib
What is an IB?
  • An approach based on

Greater choice and control to families with disabled children…through the drawing together of a series of funding streams and use of an outcomes-based approach…to enable the development and delivery of a holistic and family-led support plan …whose associated funding can be managed in a variety of ways

what have we learned from the pilots 1
What have we learned from the pilots (1)
  • Successful recruitment of a good range of families
    • Across social classes
    • But best done through personal approaches and explanation
  • The requirement of dedicated staff resources to drive activity and to engage wider professionals and families in the process
  • Social care budgets have been the largest contributor to the IB package
    • Engagement from PCT and education colleagues limited
  • The resource allocation process was a learning experience for all
    • People got very different budgets to what they had before
    • Work in progress and needing further refinement
what have we learned from the pilots 3
What have we learned from the pilots (3)
  • … but also wider resource implications around the offer of choice to participate
  • Support planning was highly valued
    • It’s the place where families get to exercise their choice
  • Good progress in engaging parents in the process, practice is less developed around how best to engage young people
  • Families changing their packages of support quite significantly (and maybe more to come)
    • More use of PAs and community / mainstream services
what did the families tell us
What did the families tell us
  • Two waves of survey in their homes
  • Covered parents and young people
  • Augmented by focus groups in each area
  • Wanted to test
    • If IBs gave better choice and control
    • .. And if so did this lead to improved well-being
in summary
In summary
  • Good progress on getting set up and recruitment families
  • Still a lot of fine tuning required around
    • Process
    • Partners
  • Positive feedback from families
    • Support planning
    • Choice and control
    • Satisfaction
expectations of the green paper
Expectations of the Green Paper
  • Green Paper signalled a wider set of pilots and extended the pilot in the six areas for another12 months to:
    • Understand more of the impact on family wellbeing through tracking those with a live IB
    • Explore how education and health based funding could be incorporated into an IB for families with disabled children during 2011-12
    • … which will help to inform the scope of the Pathfinders envisaged in the Green Paper
  • 20 Pathfinders selected and announced
    • Scope to offer Personal Budgets
expectations of the green paper 2
Expectations of the Green Paper (2)
  • Give parents more choice and control
  • Local authorities to communicate a clear local offer
  • A single assessment process and ‘Education, Health and Care Plan’ by 2014
  • Parents to have option of personalised funding by 2014
