Making it Real

What is Making it Real?

Making it Real sets out what people who use services and carers expect to see and experience if support services are truly personalised. They are a set of "progress markers" - written by real people and families - that can help an organisation to check how well they are doing towards transforming adult social care. The aim of Making it Real is for people to have more choice and control so they can live full and independent lives.

For more information please visit the Making it Real website here.

What are we doing?

The Isle of Wight council has signed up to participate in Making it Real and in November 2012 held a workshop to identify the top three priorities for Island residents. People involved in the workshop represented multiple client groups as Service Users, Carers and those who fund their own care and support.

An action plan for the Isle of Wight Council has been developed outling the three priorities and can be viewed here.
