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.
Simon Wilson has Cerebral Palsy with no speech. He runs his own disability consultancy SimonsAble, providing a range of services.
He is interested in working towards equality, so that people both with and without disabilities have the same opportunities.
