Making It Real tools
The Making it Real programme encourages organisations that pay for or provide social care services to get real about improving people’s lives. These tools have been produced in order to support this programme and include practical examples of what organisations are doing to transform their services, in partnership with the people who use them and will help people to understand and engage in the personalisation of the care and support agenda.
