At this meeting we discussed how DDPOs and Disabled people can use the law to influence the commissioning process and the existing mechanisms the commissioners can use to protect services delivered by Disabled people for Disabled people.
Luke’s appeal was dismissed. This is a devastating outcome for him as he won’t only be stuck at home with minimal support he also risks losing his support team, who were with him for 18 years. The outcome is also disappointing and worrying for other Disabled people, as this case sends a message to local authorities that they can implement whatever cuts they want as long as they follow the right process.
