Sandwell have prioritised improving their personal budget offer for children and young people. This work involved developing a shared understanding
and commitment to personal budgets and bringing different services together to develop a clear action plan, agree common literature and develop a pilot
programme. Expanding integrated personal budgets remains an ongoing commitment for Sandwell, but families are already beginning to experience a more joined-up and personalised approach to care.
This case study includes information on some of the challenges Sandwell faced in introducing personalised budgets, how they addressed these challenges (including the Plan on a Page), some enablers and challenges encountered along the way, and a look at some of the impacts and outcomes of implementing the changes.
