A charity that works in partnership with families, individuals, services, local authorities has launched a support programme for commissioners and service providers to meet the challenges of personalisation.
In Control’s programme, called ‘Making the Change: Moving Towards Personalisation’, aims to ascertain the progress of personalisation within regions and develop an action plan for the future.
Sessions are planned in nine regions across England led by Kim Haworth, lead commissioner at Lancashire County Council, and Nigel Devine from In Control.
In Control has more than 120 adult social care departments as members.
Key features of the programme include:
- developing goals and sustainable outcomes in local areas
- advice from experts in the field
- support across a number of platforms such as seminars, workshops, action learning sets, networks and website
- a person-centred organisational tool to produce an action plan for each area
‘Making the Change: Moving Towards Personalisation’ begins with a regional, two-day introductory session to establish milestones and individual requirements.
It will be followed by ten days of workshop support in areas such as finance, supporting planning, risk management and marketing services.
Members of In Control’s Provider Network will receive one free place at the programme in one of the nine regions.
The first session will take place in the North West on 29 September.
