The Individual Service Funds Handbook

Implementing Personal Budgets in Provider Organisations

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

The Individual Service Funds Handbook is the definitive guide to one of the most innovative forms of personal budget in health and social care.

It gives a clear explanation of what Individual Service Funds (ISFs) are, how to use them effectively and includes all the information you need in order to implement them in your organisation. The Handbook spans a range of settings, including a dementia care home, supported living and residential homes for adults with learning disabilities and people who use mental health services. It also sets out guidelines and templates which can be used when implementing ISFs, addressing key practical concerns including: how to put together effective support plans, and how to ensure that ISFs are delivered in a person-centred way, how to overcome organisational complexities in implementation and supporting managers.

A one-stop resource for anyone wanting to understand the potential of ISFs, the Handbook is required reading for service providers, commissioners, and those engaged in person-centred practice and personalisation, including user-led organisations.

Ideal for people who are responsible for managing and leading care services, this book describes how Individual Service Funds can be used to support person-centred care through the practical experiences of providers working with people of different ages and support needs. A must for any care provider who is keen to explore this new opportunity for personalisation. – Professor Jon Glasby, Director of Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham.
