How to move from block contracts to individual service funds

The book explains how we worked with a team of people living and working in a typical care home – ‘Old Street’. 

Using person-centred practices, the book shows how we worked with people to give them more choice and control over their life – what they do, where they go, how they are supported and who supports them.

Just enough support

“Making it Personal for Everyone” takes into account three perspectives:

  • “Anne-Marie”, who lives in the house 
  • Becky, who works there and 
  • Carolynn, the manager. 


It describes how the new person-centred approach “Just Enough Support” enabled Anne-Marie to enjoy a life of her choosing, within budget, while increasing her connection with her local community.

The video below was made to accompany the book.
