This project will examine the ways in which attitudes in the adult social care system impact on disabled people’s independent living choices.  The research will ask how attitudes towards disabled people impact independent living choices and where people think the solutions lie.  It will explore where decision-making power needs to shift and how this change can come about. 

You will be part of a focus group with around 15 other disabled people.  The research will be undertaken by Ivanka who is the the lead researcher.  This discussion will focus on the attitudes you have experienced in relation to social care and independent living.  You don't need to be an expert to take part  - it is just your experience that we want to hear.  

We will cover all travel expenses for those attending and all the papers are available in a range of formats on the day - just let us know your requirements when you book. 

The second part of the session is to provide you with information about what is happening in relation to Adult Social Care Policy in Northern Ireland.  We will talk about the Power to the People Report that was published at the start of the year.  We want to make sure that disabled people are informed about the recommendations that the report made.
