LITRG response to Right to Control Trailblazer Regulations consultatio

Published on 16 June 2010

Disabled people who take up the option of an individual budget which they then choose to spend according to their needs can get caught up in the tax system, for example as employers of their carers. LITRG has therefore called for tightening of draft regulations for ‘trailblazer’ local authority pilots to ensure that there is clear responsibility to provide tax help and support.

LITRG’s response to the consultation - entitled ‘Making choice and control a reality for disabled people’ – highlights that more could have been gained from earlier consultations and research to inform and improve the current pilots.
