The Right to control is intended to ensure disabled people have choice and control over the support they need to go about their daily lives. It aims to shift the balance of power from the state to the individual, assisting disabled people to achieve better outcomes from the support they currently receive. The Right to control will ensure that for certain public funding disabled people will have a right to: be told the monetary value of resources available to them; have choice and control over how resources are used to meet agreed outcomes; be entitled to receive a direct payment, or to influence the way services are commissioned on their behalf, or to take a mixture of direct payments and commissioned services. To identify the best ways of delivering choice and control the Right will be tested in eight local authority areas in England for two years. These sites will be known as Trailblazers and will begin testing the Right from late 2010. This document sets out proposals for how the Right to control, and the Trailblazer sites, will function and seeks consultation with a view to ensuring the Trailblazers are supported by the most appropriate regulations.
