Protocol to give users more say

Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The National Centre for Independent Living (NCIL) and the Association of Directors of Social Services (ADSS) have signed an important protocol to support the development of Centres for Independent Living (CILs) and user-led organisations. The protocol has developed in the context of recent government policy initiatives that set out the intention to give users more control of social care commissioning. It aims to encourage local authorities to value the contribution made by existing disabled people’s organisations and other user and carer-led organisations and strongly supports authorities in developing user and carer-led organisations where there are none in existence.
