ROFA has produced a new update of the NILSS Vision, including an easy-read version, which can be accessed here: (see docs below)
They include some questions and discussion points:
QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSION
1. What different functions and support would local independent living services need to provide and what role would DDPOs, LAs and local third sector have in delivering these services?
2. What would the national functions of a NILS include and how would a national NILS work with local DDPOs and LAs?
3. How could we ensure a right to independent living delivers support free at the point of need?
4. How do we need to tackle staff/Personal Assistant recruitment, pay and conditions?
These will be discussed at the upcoming DPO Conference in Manchester on 22nd September or by responding to these by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
