Making it Personal

Wednesday 31 October 2012


Making it Personal was a project funded by the Department for Education and managed by the charity KIDS which provided support and advice to for parents and carers of disabled children and young people and also to commissioners, about personalisation and personal budgets.

As part of this project OPM produced guidance for commissioners and others in children’s services which explained how to commission for personalisation. This guidance draws particularly on the experience and knowledge gained from the personalisation of services for disabled children and young people over the last decade.

It is primarily designed for strategic commissioners: lead members, health and wellbeing boards, children’s partnership boards, directors of children’s services, strategic and operational commissioning teams and clinical commissioning groups.
