Surrey: developing personal budgets with carers
Surrey County Council has developed its arrangements for personal budgets with the involvement of carers throughout. As a result, the carer's assessment has been embedded in the main Supported Self-Assessment to ensure that these are routinely undertaken. It also reinforces the right of carers to be consulted in the service user's assessment and other statutory obligations (e.g. information provision, eligibility criteria that include risk to carers).
