Promoting Independence, Changing Lives (PICL)

I was recently asked by the Director of Adult Social Care for Leicestershire to be the first speaker at an event at County Hall. The event was a full day of talks, presentations and celebration of the innovations that are taking place in social care as it develops new ways to make services more personal to each individual. They chose my example of how Direct Payments can change someones life and there were lots of other people talking about new ways that Adult Social Care is helping them.

The day finished with a humorous talk by the actor Bill Maynard about his part in a new video promoting advice on benefits for older people.

The event also included a lovely poem called "Dignity" especially written by Sue Eato, the Communications and Consultation Manager for Leicestershire Adult Social Care Services.
