Abstract

The personalisation agenda has permeated many different areas of social policy across Europe over the last decade and none more so than in social care. Charlotte Pearson and Julie Ridley argue that whilst in many ways the ideas behind personalisation are progressive, the implementation of these ideas in a time of budget cuts has limited their ability to have a positive impact on people’s lives. With large cuts to local authority funding continuing in the foreseeable future, this problem of resources will hamper any ability to promote transformational change.
