What is the UNIC project?
UNIC is a project that aims to develop tools to support mainly public authorities but also service providers and people with long-term care and support needs toimplementuser-centred funding models, such as personal budgets.
What is a personal budget?
A Personal budget is an amount of money that is given to a person by the public authorities. This budget is for the person to decide how to use it to meet their needs and wishes and arrange the support they need.
What are the benefits of implementing a personal budgets model?
This model puts the person with care and support needs at the centre of the planning. Individuals are free to choose and receive the type of support they need, and they wish to receive.

Who will benefit from the UNIC project?
Mainly public authorities but also people with long-term care and support needs, such as persons with disabilities and older people,as well asservice providers
