In order to ascertain the ideas and views of service users, the researchers made contact with an extensive list of organisations that represent the interests of service users. The researchers aimed to reflect the entire spectrum of potential users of adult social care services and included organisations representing disabled adults, older people, family carers, drug and alcohol users and other groups of service users.  The paper is in three sections. Section 1 looks at the desired outcomes of a new approach from the perspective of users of services. Section 2 identifies the service principles that would underpin the accomplishment of the outcomes identified in Section 1. Section 3 identifies some implementation issues concerned with matters of structure and process.

The Independent Living Fund put power in the hands of the consumer, but fell victim to its own success when horrified ministers looked at the cost. Argues that its abolition has been a major setback for disabled people - instead of direct payments enabling them to purchase assistance, new applicants will be reliant on having their needs met by local authority services, a reaffirmation of the dominance of professional choice over the ability of disabled people to choose how their needs should be met.

The Independent Living Fund (ILF) has had a short but colourful career in Britain. Created in 1988 at short notice and with little forethought, it has raised issues which transcend its immediate and practical role, and although initially viewed with some scepticism, its recent demise has been widely mourned. This article examines: the origins of the ILF; the early scepticism; the subsequent development and positive evaluation of the ILF; the changes which affected the ILF in April 1993 and some of the problems associated with these.

Relationships between the NHS and social care services over the past 25 years have a poor history.  This article examines the strategies that have been used by central government and by local NHS and social care organizations to overcome difficulties of service co-ordination in relation to services for older people and disabled adults. The article is written from the perspective of the NHS. The authors conclude that policies reflecting 'networked' modes of governance may stand the best chance of success, although evidence of improved impact and outcomes still remains scarce.

From adolescence to young adulthood: the partnership challenge for learning disability services in England

Author:
HUDSON Bob
Journal article citation:
Disability and Society, 18(3), May 2003, pp.259-276.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis,

The transition from adolescence to young adulthood is acknowledged to be difficult for all young people, but the problems facing those with a learning disability will tend to be greater. This article identifies these additional difficulties, and considers the extent to which new policy requirements and expectations in England can address them. At the heart of this new approach is the need for partnership working between a complex range of agencies and professionals. What is at stake is not only a better system of support for some vulnerable young people, but also--in microcosm--the viability of partnership working as a policy tool for addressing complex issues.
