The social model of disability came out of the disabled peoples movement. It was influenced by other civil rights movements
It looked at ways to change the system through removing barriers to inclusion.
At it’s heart was this slogan:Social model

There are 7 steps to self directed support , which is at the centre of ‘the personalisation agenda’
1. My money – finding out how much
Your local authority will give you a short self-assessment questionnaire. The authority should then tell you quickly how much money you are entitled to for your support. (indicative budget)
2. Making my plan
You have to write a support plan. It should include the support you need and the things you would like to achieve in your life.
3. Getting my plan agreed
Your local authority must agree your plan before you get the money.7 steps
There are several ways that you can take and manage
the money you get for your support. (Direct payments,
Managed accounts, Commissioned services)
5. Organising my support
There are different ways of organising your support.
You can organise it yourself or get someone else to organise it.7 steps
Self-directed support is about using the support money to have a
good life– for example, a good place to live, work, friends, and interesting
things to do in the day.
7. Seeing how it worked
Support plans are bound to change and you need to review how things are working. Your local authority will review your plan with you.7 steps
