    So this how large charities spend the donations given by people? I would imagine all the CEO that attended went there without pay, as I am sure they would be glad not to spend their charities money on pointless exercises like this, or perhaps these charities have lots of disposable income, whilst the people they advertise they support are left at the mercy of under funded public services?

    Also nice to see our public servants having a good day discussing something no body understands including In Control, Personalisation, a made up word, with no meaning and no legislation to back it up, just some politician and right wing think tanks wet dream, which is making a mockery of the hard work done by disability activists.

    Well done, I say, lets have more of this! Thousands of pounds wasted.
