Written by Council for Disabled ChildrenDate 02 Jun 2016

This paper identifies some of the key opportunities and challenges around the personalisation of social care as identified by the Council for Disabled Children.

It is a review of the literature available on personalisation both from the voluntary sector and government, and highlights some of the key issues in personalisation for disabled children, young people, their families and carers. It is part of a series of papers developed by CDC and members of the CDC working group on personalisation alongside the Association for the Directors of Children’s Services.

These papers look at personalisation in numerous different contexts including education and transition services, as well as discuss some of the key issues for the voluntary sector arising from the implementation of the personalisation agenda.
