Cabinet Decision: 12th January 2012
Title of Item/Report
Personalisation Update
Record of the Decision
Cabinet considered a report that provided an update on progress in Stockton-on-Tees for the developments of the Personalisation agenda within adult social care services and in line with the direction of travel over the last two years based on the earlier ‘Putting People First' and more recent ‘Think Local, Act Personal' concordats.

Work had progressed on the development of a Resource Allocation System and Personal Needs Questionnaire, which was enabling people to self-direct their support by offering an upfront budget allocation and supporting them to complete a costed support plan which explained how they wished to receive support services in future. This process was impacting positively on the Council's ability to manage social care assessments and meet new performance targets.

Examples of two cases given Personal Budgets were provided.

RESOLVED that the direction of travel and progress to date, associated with the Resource Allocation System and the Personal Needs Questionnaire, be noted.

To support Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council with the continued transformation of Adult Social Care services in line with Think Local, Act Personal and the Vision for Adult Social Care.
