    Early intervention: decision-making in local authority children's services: final report

    This is a study of local authority decision-making in respect to long-term decision making and early intervention services. The study seeks to gain a better understanding of the factors that facilitate and hinder delivery of improved outcomes for children and families over the longer-term. This report synthesises the data gathered from: a literature review; 30 telephone interviews with senior officers and members in local authorities in England; and feedback from 49 subject matter experts attending five regional events.

    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.

    The role of carers and families in reablement

    This film for health and adult social care commissioners and people who use reablement and their carers introduces Jill Hunter, who was recently discharged from hospital with limited mobility. We hear how crucially important it is for families and carers to buy into the reablement ethos and contribute to its success

    The business case for reablement

    This film for health and adult social care commissioners introduces reablement, which we see in operation with Jill Hunter, recently discharged from hospital following surgery. We also see how investment in a ‘step-down’ reablement unit has facilitated far more hospital discharges, reducing health costs.
