Key points

The key points in the strategy are:

  • We want people with disabilities to be able to do as much as they can with a focus on ability not disability.
     
  • We want to help people with disabilities stay as independent as possible for as long as they can and make use of the support available in their communities.

To achieve this, we intend to:

  • Prevent people needing care services by giving them good information and advice on how to do things for themselves rather than doing things for them.
     
  • Reduce the number of people needing to use care services in the future by giving early targeted, time-limited support so that they can use services like everyone else (e.g. transport, leisure, employment, health).
     
  • Delay a need to rely on care services in the long term by targeting extra help and support when it’s needed, such as when someone comes out of hospital or if their carers need help.
     
  • Meet eligible assessed social care needs with effective services that offer the right care, in the right place, at the right price.

This approach will support people with disabilities to lead a fulfilling life within their communities and will reduce the need for care services which can then be protected for those who need them most.
