Service summary

Wiltshire Centre for Independent Living is a user led organisation which means we are managed and led by local disabled people. Our core work is to support disabled people across Wiltshire to actively experience choice, control and independence.

We are also commissioned by Wiltshire Council to provide support to people in receipt of a personal budget (PB) through a direct payment. Following a comprehensive assessment for a social care package people can choose to receive a ‘cash’ payment to manage their own care. People arrange their care through an agency of their choice or by directly employing their own Personal Assistant (PA). We support with all areas to ensure people can manage their direct payment effectively including offering a payroll and banking service so that people are supported with all aspects of employment law. We host a PA register and support people with the recruitment and management of their PA’s. We also provide a support planning service and community development opportunities alongside our #Makesomeonewelcome campaign.

In June 2018 we were awarded a contract with Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group to provide them with user expertise. We have a register of User Engagement which people can sign up to and become involved in sharing their views on using adult social care and health services.
