Clenton Farquharson on being ‘in control’ this Christmas

As part of our Be In Control Xmas campaign, Clenton shares his views.

If I had a Christmas wish it would be to see us reclaim 'independent living' from a term that seems to mean 'living alone' back to what it should be - being able to live the life you want to live and be supported to do so.

I have been working and pushing for change for over 20 years and this Christmas I have the wish that we can not only help more people gain access to personal budgets but change the way we all think and talk about independent living.
