Change that leads to better lives

More Control for Disabled People

Work and Pensions Secretary, Yvette Cooper has launched a national consultation that could change the lives of disabled people.

The ‘Right to Control’ will give disabled people greater power over how they use the funding they receive from the state. It recognises that disabled people are experts in their own lives and have the right to choice and control over their support.

Under the new scheme, disabled people will be able to choose who delivers their services and how they receive them. They can have as much or as little control as they wish and can spend money on whatever helps them to live with greater independence and freedom.

Right to Control is a major part of the Government’s vision to achieve equality for disabled people by 2025.

For more information about the consultation, visit the Office for Disability Issues website, or call 020 7449 5093.
