The third National Personal Budget survey was undertaken by the partnership between Think Local, Act Personal, In Control and Lancaster University.
It was the largest to date with over 4,000 participants and looked at the experiences of personal budget holders and their carers, children and young people. It also included a survey on personal health budget holders.
The results were encouraging and showed that when people are involved in the process, for example, understanding how much money they will receive and having their views heard – they report good outcomes.
Results also indicated that when the process is easy people have a better quality of life. For more information click here
