Our new research Leading My Life My Way looks at young disabled people’s experiences of using support services to live independent lives.

Young disabled people are experiencing poor quality care and support planning, a lack of information and advice tailored to their specific needs and expectations.

This means many young disabled people are facing barriers to getting support to do the things they want in their lives, such as living where they want to, getting a job or being involved in their community. This is leading to social exclusion and affecting young disabled people’s wellbeing.
