Abstract

Between September 2011 and January 2013 the Carers Federation Ltd funded a study with the objective of making a productive contribution to the emerging knowledge base about carers and personalisation by exploring a hitherto under-researched key issue - the carer-service user relationship. The focus was on developing better understandings of how a change in a service users’ social care arrangements to a personal budget affects the carer-service user relationship. The rationale for this focus was:

• the centrality of this relationship to the delivery, quality and experience of care in general and within a personalised approach to service delivery

• the few studies that have been carried out indicate that personalisation can change this relationship . Given that this relationship is at the heart of the caring process, these changes require further exploration in order to ensure the successful implementation of personalisation

• personal budgets will impact on the lives of an increasing number of carers
