Personalising Commissioning - An Overview of Individual Service Funds in England

Discussion paper | November 2021

Individual Service Funds (ISFs) were introduced by the Care Act in 2014, as a promoted option for commissioning self-directed support. Since then, a number of local authorities have developed an offer around ISFs and have been able to spend time ‘testing and learning’ from this approach. This paper provides a brief overview of emerging practice around ISFs and reflects on some of the key lessons learned to date from organisations who have adapted to this model of provision.
