The Office for Disability Issues commissioned an independent feasibility study to produce a set of recommendations for an evaluation of the Right to control trial sites, known as Trailblazers. The feasibility study approach involved one-to-one consultation with professional stakeholders, local authority representatives, and disabled adults, followed by a stakeholder workshop. This report sets out recommendations based on the consultation. The report is split into four main sections beginning with a summary of the funding streams likely to be included under the Right to control in the Trailblazers, and how the Right to control might impact on the administration of those streams. The subsequent three sections cover the design of an impact evaluation for the Trailblazers, the collection of data to support a value for money assessment, and the design of a process evaluation. In commissioning the evaluation, the report recommends that a team is put in place several months before any of the Trailblazer sites start to offer the Right to control in order that the evaluation team would be able to work with local authorities during the set up phase.
