right to control

The Right to Control (RTC) is a new legal right for disabled people, giving them more choice and control over the support they need to go about their daily lives.

Disabled adults living in seven test areas - called Trailblazers - were be able to combine the support they received from six different sources: Access to Work; Work Choice; Independent Living Fund; non-statutory housing related support (also know as Supporting People); Disabled Facilities Grant; Adult Community Care. 

The syntesis evaluation of the Right to Control pilot was published on the 1st July 2013. 

The Right to Control has been developed by the Office for Disability Issues (ODI) in partnership with disabled people and their organisations, through the Right to Control Advisory Group, chaired by Baroness Jane Campbell. Government departments, service providers and Sitra are all members of this group.

Sitra is committed to providing updates on this topic through publication of it's Right to Control briefings.
