A report on In Control’s First Phase - Evaluation and learning 2003 - 2005

This report is about the first phase of In Control's work, 2003-2005. It is based on an evaluation by Professor Chris Hatton of Lancaster University.

Phase 1 Report COVER

The report describes In Control's 'new Operating System' for social care - self-directed support. The system was developed through experimentation in six pilot authority areas: Wigan, Redcar and Cleveland, Gateshead, West Sussex, Essex and South Gloucestershire.

The pilots involved only 60 people, all of whom had learning difficulties. These small beginnings laid the foundations for further developments and the creation of a national system of self-directed aupport.

The evaluation is based on an analysis of outcomes in six key areas of people's lives: self-determination, direction, money, home, support and community life.
