In Control is a national charity that was inspired by the Independent Living Movement. It pioneers the concept of self-directed support and developed personal budgets as a way for people to take control of their own support.
In Control brings together professionals with a wealth of experience in the health and social care sectors, as well as individuals and family members who have experienced the systems first-hand.
The charity operates as an extensive network known as the ‘Community of Change,’ and it:
• Works directly with people who need support, and with their families to provide them with the knowledge, power and tools to take control of their lives
• Influences and improves the delivery of self-directed support
• Develops and tests new innovative ways for people to be in control of their lives
• Measures the impact of self-directed support and personal budgets on people's lives
