Theme of this match

The match will focus on the shift from segregated services to individualized based supports for people with disabilities. Ireland is just about to introduce Personal Budgets and is currently exploring what the landscape of support will need to look like for people and families so that they can get maximum benefit in terms of good life outcomes from individualized funding. We will reflect on our current thinking, share ways of working, early success stories and barriers and learn from each other’s experiences. Sub-themes: 1. Personalised budgets and individualised funding; 2. Family Leadership.
