Great event with like-minded colleagues at Community Care Live 2012 in London 16th and 17th May.  Some positive messages around how local authorities and organisations are working hard to learn from best practice, debate the big issues and how we can all work towards making Personalisation work.

As you can see from the photo Gary Smelt – HomeCareDirect’s Communities and Housing Officer – looks like a natural on camera being interviewed for Think Local, Act Personal Website –


Making It Real offers the Think Local, Act Personal (TLAP) markers of progress for personalisation and community-based support.  In Control and Think Local, Act Personal can support to deliver on the key themes identified in Making it Real.  Helping to check progress, review what is offered, make a plan for action and deliver.
