Researchers at the Carers Federation are looking for carers of people with Parkinson’s
to take part in a study to find out their views on personal budgets. If you’ve been awarded a personal budget to help pay for their social care costs, you may be eligible to take part.
This research will investigate how carers’ roles, responsibilities and relationships are changing as a result of the new Personalisation Agenda and the introduction of personal budgets to pay for social care.
The researchers hope to identify how best to support carers through this transition and into their new routine.
