The Marketplace for Independant Living
Following the government’s commitment to put in place new ways to support disabled people, it became clear to LCiL (Leicestershire Centre for Integrated Living) that this required a new way of responding to the opportunities and challenges this presented. The response had to be one which started with the individual and their circumstances rather than the service.
With a history and proven track record of supporting disabled people, it became evident through LCiL’s work that there was a fundamental gap in the knowledge that existed, not only with disabled people, but also with organisations, businesses and professionals.
As an organisation established by disabled people for disabled people, LCiL’s mission is to empower disabled people, by promoting the benefits of disabled people. LCiL do this by providing or encouraging the provision of services that facilitate independence for disabled people in daily living activities and in active participation and full integration into society.
We strongly believe that the Choice Unlimited concept is a powerful and innovative catalyst in thinking about social care, support and independent living in an entirely different way.
