Publisher: York, U.K. Social Policy Research Unit, University of York 2008Description: HTML.Notes: URL: 'http://php.york.ac.uk/inst/spru/pubs/adult.php' Checked: 2/03/2009 9:55:11 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: Individual Budgets (IB) are new ways of giving people who use social care services a greater say in the assessment of their needs; better understanding of how resources are allocated to meet those needs; and greater flexibility in using resources to meet individual needs and priorities. This evaluation found that IBs were generally welcomed by users because they gave them more control over their lives, but there were variations in outcomes between user groups. IBs also presented a variety of challenges and opportunities for the practitioners involved in their implementation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Individual budgets pilot projects : impact and outcomes for carers. /

by Glendinning, Caroline | Buckmaster, Luke.

Publisher: York, U.K. Social Policy Research Unit, University of York 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.york.ac.uk/inst/spru/research/pdf/IBSENCarersRep.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:30:04 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: Individual Budgets (IBs), piloted in 13 English local authorities, aimed to give greater flexibility, choice and control. Although primarily intended to benefit chronically sick, disabled and older people, IBs could also be expected to affect their carers. This study investigated the impact of IBs on carers in terms of assessment, support planning, costs and outcomes. Main findings include: > When carers of people with IBs were compared with carers of people using conventional services, IBs were significantly associated with positive impacts on carers' reported quality of life and, when other factors were taken into account, with social care outcomes. Positive outcomes for carers partly reflected being more able to engage in activities of their choice. IBs assessment and support planning offered more opportunities for carers' involvement than conventional social care practice. Sites varied in how help from carers was treated in calculating the monetary value of service users' IBs." -- SPRUAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

This review was carried out by Katharine Nice from the Social Policy Research Unit, University of York, as an early part of the qualitative study of referral practices in Jobcentre Plus Pathways to Work (DWP Research Report 555). This review was conducted in order to draw together and synthesise what was already known about the process of referring incapacity benefits recipients to specialist service provision. The review draws on a selection of qualitative studies completed earlier in the Pathways evaluation, and other published reports on a range of disability employment services. The review covers numerous topics, and the key findings are drawn together to identify topics and questions which were later explored in an empirical study of referral practices." -- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The study was conducted in 2007 and 2008 to explore referral practices and liaison amongst Jobcentre Plus staff and service providers involved in helping incapacity benefits recipients move towards, and into, paid employment. The study was led by the Social Policy Research Unit at the University of York in collaboration with the Policy Studies Institute and the National Centre for Social Research. > The main stage of the research design comprised qualitative interviews with Incapacity Benefit Personal Advisers (IBPAs) and Disability Employment Advisers (DEAs) who work in Jobcentre Plus offices, and frontline staff of organisations providing services to incapacity benefits recipients. The study focused on the key areas of IBPAs' and DEAs' knowledge of external (and internal) services; influences on advisers' referral decisions and practices; differences and overlaps in the roles of IBPAs and DEAs; working relationships between Jobcentre Plus staff and external providers, and the understanding and practice of the 'case management' of Pathways to Work clients." -- Publisher websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
