This good practice guidance is written for front line staff and their managers, to assist them in their role of delivering the Right to control to disabled people. It is intended to supplement statutory guidance. The aim of the guidance is: to encourage and support good practice by the trial sites of the Right to control, known as Trailblazers; to build on existing good practice in the context of the personalisation of adult social care and other relevant initiatives; to inform Trailblazers of useful resources and good practice examples; to cover issues which cut across the six funding streams involved in the scheme; and to provide information and resources which will assist Trailblazers to deliver the Right to control across all impairment groups and to all ages from 18. Although this is non-statutory guidance, it is based on the legislative framework and is intended to illustrate how the entitlements contained in the legislation can be delivered.
