Abstract

This article is a summary of a paper delivered at the North-east of England Branch Annual Conference in September 2015. The presentation reported findings from a qualitative focus group study with adults with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities and representatives of community organisations providing support for people with intellectual disabilities (PwID). An overview of key findings is presented here, highlighting: (a) instances in which the personalisation agenda in social care, with its drive to reduce dependence and promote individual responsibility, can be at odds with the needs of PwID, and (b) some contextual constraints on agency and social inclusion within this population.
