Abstract
  • People with learning difficulties and very high support needs are at the forefront of service providers and commissioners' thinking. However, there are presently few solutions to providing them with opportunities. "Unlocking the future" explores ways in which services need to change to provide this group of people with lifestyles based on their own wishes and needs. "Unlocking the future" is the last book in the "Changing days" series. It complements the previous books by providing practical guidance for the creation of truly person-centred services that will result in better quality lives for people with complex disabilities. Aspects of the "Changing days" work that are crucial to success are highlighted: from getting to know individuals and their lives and developing understanding, to the processes and best practices that facilitate the creation of lifestyles based on individual choice and community inclusion.
