Our gem of the month is....
The two-year pilot project from DRILL (Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning), the programme led
by disabled people
for disabled people, and funded by the Big Lottery Fund, looking at care co-operatives or co-ops.
Led by the Cheshire Centre for Independent Living with four other Disabled People’s Organisations – Breakthrough UK, Disability Equality (NW) Ltd, Disability Association Carlisle and Eden and Merseyside Disability Federation - the project looks at the concept of a care co-operative social enterprise model for disabled people who get a personal social care budget or a personal health budget.
