Disability Rights UK have submitted a response to this consultation.

Read our response.

We have not gone into details on all the guidance because we have been involved in many meeting with the Department of Health and we are endorsing the responses from the Care and Support Alliance of which we are members.  You can find their responses by following the link:

We have made comments on some aspects which we think will be of most concern to our members including the wellbeing principle, commissioning, charging, direct payments, support planning and continuity of care (portability).

We have also called for guidance on the transfer of the ILF to local authorities if the Fund closes at the end of June 2015.

This consultation was about the guidance and regulations only.
