Summary

This title was first published in 2002: A critical look at the experiences of disabled people in accessing and receiving community care in the UK. The author uses a framework of citizenship, encompassing civil and social rights, to ask difficult questions about the role the welfare state plays in preventing and promoting people's independence. The book discusses the relationship between rationing, policy, professional practice and the needs of disabled people and their families from a citizenship perspective and provides critical insight into possible solutions to promoting disabled people's citizenship and independence within the limits of today's welfare state.
