Centre for Welfare Reform re-publishes Better Lives

First published in 2014, Better Lives is the independent evaluation of Choice Support’s personalisation work in Southwark using Individual Service Funds (ISFs).

In his foreword to the second edition Dr Simon Duffy, Director of the Centre for Welfare Reform writes that “re-publication is an important milestone.” 

He explains that the role of providers like Choice Support and their ability to work flexibly and in partnership with individuals is the key to the success of ISFs. 

After Better Lives was first published Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) backed the use of ISFs in their government-funded best practice guidance, Individual Service Funds (ISFs) and Contracting for Flexible Support (2015). TLAP's publication case studies the same Choice Support ISF work assessed in Better Lives. 

However, Dr Duffy warns “this new approach to health and social care only deserves to survive if it is built on and supports people’s human rights and the goal of equal citizenship for all.”
