Essex 3-year study on personal budgets
The Office for Public Management (OPM) and Essex Coalition of Disabled People (ECDP) have been commissioned by Essex County Council to carry out a 3-year study on the impact of personal budgets on 46 disabled and older people in Essex.
The study provides in-depth insights from service users and their families over a 3-year period. It also looks at how professionals and service providers in the private and voluntary sector are responding to the personalisation agenda.
A summary of the findings from the first phase of the study was published in July 2010.
