This report from the Joint Committee on Human Rights indicates that the right of people with a disability to independent living is at risk from factors such as the economic climate and welfare reforms. The Committee makes a number of recommendations for national and local government, which are asked to monitor and report on the impact of welfare reforms and spending decisions in adult social care. As well as summarising the Joint Committee’s report, this briefing updates on the government’s forthcoming Disability Strategy.
