This document sets out how organisations should work together with each other and individuals to deliver the Right to control for disabled adults. The Right to control is intended to ensure that disabled people have choice and control over the support they need to go about their daily lives, and to assist them to achieve better outcomes from the support they receive. This document is intended to supplement the preexisting legislation and regulations that the Secretaries of state and other relevant authorities must already be following and have in place in order to promote disability equality. In addition to legal obligations, this document sets out good practice suggestions. Chapter 1 serves as an introduction, chapter 2 applies to qualifying services, chapter 3 applies to modifications to the Housing grants, chapter 4 applies to Disabled facilities grants, chapter 5 applies to community care services and chapter 6 applies to the power to share data.
