'The book is (...)wonderfully rich in ideas... There is much in the 300-plus pages of this book to help you, and it is well worth buying as a comprehensive toolkit.'

'Stirk and Sanderson have really brought to life the concept of personalisation in its more holistic form. Their systemic analysis of what constitutes a person-centred organisation incorporates familiar theory about managing change, valuing people and remaining committed to the outcomes determined by service users and the community themselves. It is refreshing to see how the practical realities of this journey are tangible and the authors make it clear that being person-centred is more than just empty rhetoric. Based on personal experience, expertise and evaluation, I found the advice, tips and recommendations invaluable. This book is essential for leaders at all levels of the organisation and for those interested in fostering genuine participation in developing and delivering services from the bottom up!'
