Personal Budgets: A Guide for Families

This briefing document describes how personal budgets will work for families of children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. The briefing is for voluntary sector providers of children’s palliative care in England – including children’s hospices – understand personal budgets. It includes case studies and links to other resources and best practice examples.

This briefing was published by Together for Short Lives and prepared by the charity In Control. The resource was produced as part of a Department for Education-funded project between 2014-16 to engage children’s palliative care in the special educational needs and disability (SEND) reforms.
