EASPD to coordinate new project on Personal budgets for Long term care

Towards User-centred fuNdIng models for long term Care (UNIC) is the name of a new EU-funded project coordinated by EASPD. It kick-started in October 2020 and will run for a 3-year period. The UNIC project aims to develop, test and validate a set of innovative tools to help key stakeholders to implement a Personal Budgets funding model. These tools, together with a set of policy recommendations and capacity building activities, will result in a comprehensive preparatory reform mechanism to support public authorities in the deployment of a user-centred funding model – based on the concept of personal budgets – for Long Term Care.
EASPD will coordinate UNIC with the collaboration of 8 partners: the European Ageing Network (EAN-Luxemburg), the Centre for Welfare Reform (CWR-United Kingdom), the Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI-Ireland), the Flemish Agency for Person with a Disability (VAPH-Belgium), the Association of Social Care Providers of the Czech Republic (APSSCR-Czech Republic), the SUPPORT Girona Guardianship Foundation (SUPPORT-Spain), the Service Foundation for Persons with an Intellectual Disability (KVPS-Finland), and Lebenshilfe Salzburg (LHS-Austria).
Tools developed by UNIC will be tested for 12 months in Belgium by VAPH and will then be transferred to the Austrian, Czech, Finnish and Spanish contexts.
