Made to Measure was a two-year pilot run in Trafford and Plymouth established to address the challenges of individual parents seeking to purchase services using their personal budgets. The aim was to increase choice and control for families of disabled children by increasing their influence on market development and the provision of services that meet the needs of their children.
This case study looks at practice examples from areas across England where personal budgets are being used by families to access short breaks and how commissioners are working together across services and with families to design and deliver effective personalised support.
KIDS project Make it Personal (MIP3) has been workingwith groups of young people across three regions to formYoung Peoples Engagement Groups (YPEGs). These groupshave looked at the personal budgets and in particular howeducation budgets can help them reach their aspirationsand goals.
