Personal budgets and self-determination by Jenny Morris

An excellent blog post from Jenny Morris reflecting on the current debate about personal budgets and social care and reminding us not to lose sight of what's important - to empower people rather than disempower people.

The piece has been prompted by some recent debate on personal budgets and the limitations of self-directed support and urges people not to confuse the principles of self-directed support with the mechanisms. Jenny stresses that choice and control over the support needed in people's daily lives allows people to aspire to self-determination and be in charge of their lives.
