Personalising public services: Understanding the personalisation narrative

Catherine Needham


Personalisation – the idea that public services should be tailored to the individual, with budgets devolved to the service user or frontline staff – is increasingly seen as the future of the welfare state. This book focuses on how it evolved as a policy narrative and has mobilised such wide-ranging political support.

Keywords: individual needs, devolved budgets, service users, frontline staff, welfare state
