Many of you get in touch with us here at Essex Carers Support in connection with issues related to the support you get from Essex County Council in the form of a personal budget. Now is your chance to tell the County Council about your experiences, both good and bad.
POET - the Personal Budgets Outcomes and Evaluation Tool has been developed over a number of years by In Control and the Centre for Disability Research at Lancaster University. Its aim is to provide a national benchmark on the impact that personal budgets are having on people’s lives.
Essex County Council have been in touch with us here at Essex Carers Support and asked us to encourage carers of people using personal budgets to complete a short online survey about their personal experiences.
We would like to encourage as many of you as possible to take the time to complete the survey as the findings will be used by Essex County Council to improve their services.
The link will be open until 31st August 2014
The survey can be found at: http://puttingpeoplefirst.limeask.com/index.php/749411/lang-en
More information about the survey can be found on InControl’s website.
