Richard Jones, president of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services has said English local authorities are making good progress in giving people who use social services their own personal budgets with which to purchase services they decide are the ones they want.
Speaking in October he said a survey soon to be released would outline the position as at the end of September.
“We expect to meet our 30% target of all eligible service users with ongoing care and support receiving personal budgets by the end of March next year,” said Mr Jones.
“We’re strongly encouraging councils to work towards this and fully expect to reach 100% – or one million – of all eligible service users having a personal budget within the next two years.”
