In Control

In Control

A national charity to help create a fairer society where everyone needing additional support has the right, responsibility & freedom to control that support through personalisation. We operate as an extensive network and ‘community for change’ that aims to:

•Work directly with people who need support, and with their families to provide them with the knowledge, power and tools to take control of their lives
•Influence and improve the delivery of self-directed support
•Develop and test new innovative ways for people to be in control of their lives
•Measure the impact of self-directed support and personal budgets on people’s lives

Supports individuals, family members, carers and organisations. We partner with local authorities; user-led organisations; government and civil servants; elected members and paid staff; commercial companies; charitable and not-for-profit organisations; as well as working directly with people who need support (and their families).

Our work includes:

Focused action - to develop, test, motivate and support new practice and cultural change for self-directed support - and to make self-directed support happen in communities and in local authorities.

Critical reflection - evaluating the success of self-directed support based on how it's really working for people who need support.

Learning together - helping to build communities and networks for shared learning and partnership, by working across agencies, with local and central Government, within communities and other organisations, and directly with families.
