Making hope possible

When it comes to the future of independent living, is it possible to make hope possible rather than despair convincing?  In the current economic context that might sound like a big ask, but it’s precisely what this modest intervention aims to help achieve.

Over the coming days and weeks you’ll be able to read a range of interesting and no doubt challenging posts and to engage with people with a keen interest in and positive things to say about the future of independent living.

This blog will showcase exciting ideas, promising practices, innovative thinking, powerful evidence and compelling new narratives which together will demonstrate how independent living provides answers to the big social policy challenges facing the UK and other countries.

If you think you’ve got something to say and would like to contribute a post, don’t hesitate to get in touch using the contacts page.    In the meantime, look out for new posts, follow the blog on Twitter @ILDebate, promote it to your friends and networks and most of all, get involved!!
