Supporting Independence

Supporting Independence

People who use Personal Budgets or Direct Payments may already know that City of York Council have decided to end their contract with the Independent Living Scheme. The Council are looking at alternative support.

Meanwhile, Lives Unlimited along with York Independent Living Network would like to know what support you need to help you manage a Personal Budget or using Direct Payments. This is a really important chance to have a say and get your thoughts heard.

Join us on Saturday 17 October, 1.00 - 4.30pm, at Acomb Friends Meeting House, The Green, Acomb, York YO26 5LR as we discuss what you need to make Personal Budgets and Direct Payments work for you. The meeting will include contributions from some very successful direct payment organisations:Les Scaife, West Lancs; Pippa Murray, Sheffield; and Lynne Turnbull, Cheshire. There will be chance tontalk to other direct payment holders about what works for them before we report back to City of York Council so they know what you want.

Please get in touch with us to book your place. You can do this by emailing us at or or leave a message on01904 683917 and we will get back to you.

Full information about the event is available in the event flyer, and directions to the venue can be found on the York Quakers website.
