  Personal Budget Calculator
Where we have got to:

 We are working on a personal budget
 calculator
              Other Issues
    We are paying attention to other
    methodologies – potential
    collaboration and learning:

•     Conventional system – price of care
      plan creates personal budget

•     Other questionnaire approaches
             Time frame
Three phases:
• Initial design of materials – by April
  1
• Test and improve – three phases of
  testing – by Sep. 1.
• Evaluation and dissemination – by
  end Nov.
          Testing Phases
Three testing phases
• Initial test of materials with 90
  people (5 per council) – by end April
• Further testing with finance with 450
  people (25 per council) – by end
  June.
• Further testing with 360 people (20
  per council) – by end Aug.
  Some challenging issues so
             far:

• Co-production
• Consensus and compromise
• 18 councils all different!
• Mixing expert and less experienced
  councils
• Time, capacity and priority.
 In Conclusion: Key Ambitions
• Framework and solution to issues
  that has been tested across councils.
• Practical set of tools that councils can
  take and use ‘out of the box’.
• Materials that have been tested by
  people and families.
• Materials that support citizenship and
  self-determination
