This time it's personal - Northamptonshire

This short paper describes Northamptonshire's exploration of how self-directed support would work in the county. By reorganising its approach to social care, the local authority wanted to find out if local people with learning disabilities could really take more control of their lives.

Northamptonshire County Council has since gone on to win a coveted Health an Social Care award for dignity in care for the work that is described in this report.
