Towards User-centered Funding Models for long term care

Learn more about the project

The goal of this project is to help public authorities to implement user-centred funding models. The project is also aimed at helping service users in long term care and support (LTCS) to move to these funding models, as well as their service providers. User-centred funding models can include Personal Budgets. A Personal budget is an amount of money which is provided to an person by the public authorities and the person can decide how to use it to cover their support needs. UNIC will develop tools to help service users, service providers and mainly public authorities to implement a user-centred funding model in long-term care and support.
