Coping with disabilities : the perspective of young adults from different ethnic backgrounds in inner London.
In April 1993, national reforms of the method of offering community health and social care have come into effect in the U.K. A cornerstone of the reforms will be the appointment of care managers by local authorities to oversee needs assessment and care of vulnerable people.
A survey was undertaken of 65 young people with physical disabilities living in inner south east London, an area of deprivation and ethnic diversity.
The aim was to ascertain the perceptions of young adults in terms of access to services, lifestyle and future plans.
The information was intended to inform joint work by the local health and social services departments in their own needs assessment in implementing the Community Care Act.
