Since the introduction of direct payments in 1997, only limited progress has been made in introducing schemes for people with learning difficulties. This article reviews the developments and the challenges, including the difficulties caused by publicity over the South Lanarkshire case. Care managers should do more to support and promote direct payments which are "exciting, challenging, innovative tools that help us towards empowerment and equality".

The right remit

Authors:

Journal article citation:
Community Care, 7.4.94, 1994, pp.26-27.
Publisher:
Reed Business Information

For community care plans to be drawn up it is essential that users are consulted. Although disabled people are being involved in plans, the authors' research raises questions about how representatives of disabled people are chosen and highlights the negative effects of asking people questions which are inappropriate to their situation. Newer organisations of disabled people, advocacy groups and black and ethnic minority community groups are less likely to belong to more established networks and therefore will miss out on consultation.

Community care planning and disabled people: barriers to effective involvement

Author:
BEWLEY Catherine
Journal article citation:
Impact, 6 April 1994, April 1994, pp.10-11.

Describes a project in Manchester which has for the last two years been looking at the involvement of disabled people in community care planning. Concludes that community care planning is at crossroads. Either it will become a paper exercise absorbing huge voluntary sector resources for little return. Or it will be more closely linked to purchasing an commissioning, providing an opportunity for disabled people and voluntary organisations to influence service provision directly.
