In the context of funding from education, a personal budget may be available where the support
provided by the school or other educational setting is insufficient to meet the student’s support
needs. The setting itself might decide to use additional resources, such as the money from ‘pupil
premium’, if the young learner is eligible to receive it.
To complement the MIP:2 - Pooled Budget Pilot Report.
With families’ permission, we sought to record how combined/pooled budgets could work in practice and use any learning that resulted to inform the MIP2 resources and guidance documents being developed.
These three Case Studies were derived from some of those who took part in the Pooled Budget Pilot.
A combined/pooled budget pilot project was carried out as part of the MIP2 project.
The aim of the pilot was to test whether it was possible for families to work together and share the financial responsibility for ‘commissioning services’ for an element or elements of their personal budget.
This national SEND Framework has been specifically developed for Family Information Services (FIS) in England.
The aim of the framework is to help FIS prepare to meet the requirements of the Department for Education’s Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) Code of Practice: 0 to 25 years, 2014.
The SEND Framework forms part of the Making it Personal:2 (MIP2) suite of resources.

Personalisation case studies:
These examples are drawn from families and service providers who have been involved in a range of experiences delivering personalised approaches and personal budgets from health, social care and education as well as exploring how organisations have worked with parent/carers and disabled children and young people to develop good practice to support the SEND reforms.
The Council for Disabled Children have released their findings from the Evidence and Build phase for Independent Support that took place during April to June 2014.
KIDS was one of the organisations commissioned to undertake research to inform the CDC report and we can now make our findings publicly available.
KIDS and OPM have set up an open forum on Knowledge Hub for commissioners to download the latest iteration of the MIP2 Commissioner's Guidance for personalisation and share information about the SEND reforms and how they are impacting on local practice. It is completely free to access, and you do not need to register to download the resources.
