Making it Personal 3 (or MIP3) aims to support innovative and creative use of educational personal budgets across England, guidance was produced for both young people and also educational providers and local authority education departments.
MIP3 has been very successful; we have engaged a wide range of stakeholders in discussions around personal budgets and worked with a broad range of educational professionals to raise the profile of EHC Plans and educational personal budgets. We have produced young people’s guidance in a lively film format that has received excellent feedback and engages with Young people with Special Education Needs/ Disabilities (SEND) effectively.
Please find the Young People's guide to Personal Budgets here or below. There is also a Makaton version and a Subtitled version available.
The guidance for educational professionals linked here offers excellent examples of how educational personal budgets can be innovatively used within many different educational settings .
KIDS have set up three Young People Engagement Groups in the South, the Midlands and North West and included young people from hard to reach groups, to produce these different forms of Young people's guidance on Personal Budgets.
Please feel free to let us know your feedback about our films and guidance by emailing us.
