SCIE Report 40: Keeping personal budgets personal: learning from the experiences of older people, people with mental health problems and their carers

Introduction

Personal budget stages

Research shows that there are key stages in the personal budget process, as shown in the figure below. In practice, these stages are not always distinct, with some 'merging' (e.g. assessment and support planning) or occurring more than once (e.g. the provision of information about personal budgets or discussions about deployment options).
