Advice for people who buy care and support through a direct payment, as well as local authorities, clinical commissioning groups and those who provide care and support has recently been published. The guidance has been produced in part with the help and wise counsel of Simon Wilson and Katherine Wynne, two individuals with lived experience and a wealth of ideas to improve service provision and support for people with disabilities.
Katherine Wynne is Director of Services at Independent Lives, a user-led charity and social enterprise working to change the lives of disabled people
She is passionate about rethinking long held approaches and traditions, both in organisations and complex systems like the NHS and social care. Director and board member.
