National Personal Budget Survey of service users and carers released by Think Local, Act Personal

The new social care survey of over 2,000 people released this week reveals that Personal Budgets are delivering improved outcomes and have an overall positive impact on the lives of personal budget holders and their carers, meaning they are supported with dignity and respect whilst staying independent, in control of their support and get that support when they need it.

However, the survey results also found that councils need to provide better quality systems and processes if they are to help continue to transform the lives of older and disabled adults and achieve the best results.

The survey ran from January to April 2011 and was developed by InControl and Lancaster University on behalf of the Think Local, Act Personal Partnership.
