The Personalised Care Group has opened applications for participants of it’s personal development programme, for people with lived experience of personalised approaches to health and social care.

The programme

The Peer Leadership Academy is a personal development programme that aims to build people’s knowledge, skills and confidence so they can play an active role in the personalised care programmes at a national and regional level.

  • A personal health budget or an integrated budget for health and social care.
  • A personalised care and support plan
  • An experience of being linked into peer support or to support organisations after a discussion with a health or social care professional
  • An experience of ongoing conversations with a health professional about your condition where you discuss your options for treatment, and the potential risks and benefits of those
