Webinar: Understanding rights and entitlements in self-directed support

Added on

Do you know what you’re allowed to use your money for? Should councils be able to reclaim money if you haven’t spent it?

This webinar unpicks the thorny issues that restrict choice and control, and helps everyone involved to move past the frustration and disappointment of a system not aligned to the spirit of the Care Act.

Hosted by Martin Walker, TLAP policy advisor in conversation with two expert speakers: Peter Gay from Personalisation Partnership and Svetlana Kotova from Inclusion London.

Peter and Svetlana discuss how they have been helping people who access services and practitioners to better understand their rights and responsibilities around self-directed support.  

The webinar is for social workers and staff who assess people’s needs, as well as people entitled to support, peer support groups and disabled people’s organisations.

The webinar included a  lively Q and A session.
