Choice and control are still key for people with disabilities

The past 30 years have seen a remarkable journey for a simple but powerful idea: that disabled people should have choice and control over their support to enable them to live as full and active members of their communities.

We now have widespread acceptance that choice and control are not just possible, but essential and vital components of mainstream policy and practice on personalised care and support.
