Improving personal budgets for older people: a research overview

This short report is an evidence overview of key pieces of UK research between 2007 and 2012, which focused on the implementation and uptake of personal budgets and direct payments for older people (including those with dementia) in England. It is not a systematic research review or an exhaustive examination of published research on the topic. Rather, it aims to give an overview of the main themes of research findings which help to identify the challenges and solutions to improving choice and control for older people (including those living with dementia) through the use of personal budgets and direct payments. Issues covered include: culture and system change; making choices and decisions; information and advice; direct payments and support services; understanding allowance and spend; budget management, monitoring and review; risk management and contingency planning; and older people living with dementia.

Co-production and participation: older people with high support needs

Part of Co-production

This briefing summarises a review of literature and a small-scale survey of good practice on the participation and co-production of older people with high support needs. It looks at the benefits and barriers to participation; highlights two research programmes involving older people with high support needs. Recommendations for improved practice are also listed. It is noted that the evidence base for the review was limited as relevant material was either about participation as it relates generally to older people or was about older people with high support needs but contained very little reference to participation.
